Time-saving score: 17.5
No coins for the parking meter? No problem. Miami is the first major U.S. city to let you pay for street parking via cell phone (text alerts tell you when time is running out). And with the most doctors per capita of any city in our survey, excellent Internet access, free single-stream recycling pickup, and a big selection of food to go, Miami has more going for it than just sunshine.
