Las Vegas and Miami Beach for sure. Besides Subways there's a huge 24 hr restaurant in Miami Beach where I ate at 4:00am. It sits on a corner and it was packed to the gills. I wish I could remember the name of that place.

11th Street Diner? A friend of mine used to work there. Introduced me to Will Smith one morning at about 3:30.

I think most cities are starting to become that way. However, when you say "city", are you talking about overall or the central business district/downtown?

That's it!! Thanks. That must have been cool meeting Will Smith.

Everything in Vegas is 24 hours, from restaurants, to bars, to casinos. You dont even realize what time it is, because you dont have to leave at a certain time. Also, LA is 24 hours in some parts, notably Hollywood, although we have the stupid 2 am cutoff time here in California (might change to 4 next year)

I think Vegas is the only true 24 hour city. Almost everything there is open 24 hours.
In and around the strip, or in the entire city? Concerning Miami Beach, yes technically it is its own city, but lets face it...it functions as the entertainment and nightlife district of Miami. Its a bit of a different story I would say.

In and around the strip is the only area I've been to, but I'd bet that the rest of the city stays open all night too since so many people work at the casinos and many of them don't have 9-5 jobs. I can't think of another city where one industry completely dominates the local economy and that industry is a 24 hour industry. Regular business hours don't exist in Vegas.

there is also no clocks in the casinos.

all big cities in america have 24 hour areas. however, i have yet to see a big city that is entirely 24 hour through and through. even sections of NYC out in the burroughs can get very sleepy.
This is true, a couple years ago I was in NYC for New Years and was staying in Astoria Queens and it was pretty much dead by 2 in the morning.

Out of all of the places that I've been, Vegas has the largest area of 24 activity. That should not be surprising.

I'd agree with that. Vegas is also 24 hours every day of the week. Some of the other cities really only approach 24 hours on weekends.

I'm not sure how LA could be called a 24-hr city. We have lots of people so there are always cars on the streets/freeways but there's not really much to do in the middle of the night, even on weekends. As LASF pointed out even the clubs in LA close at 2am.
