Miami is probably the closest to running out of land. Assuming they don't allow the boundary to stretch further into the swamps.

Miami is pretty much already out of land. There is a little bit left on the southern edge of the area around Homestead, but aside from that there's nothing left in Miami-Dade or Broward Counties. The only direction for growth (other than up) is stretching the area farther north. Miami all the way up to West Palm Beach is already one conjoined mass but its beginning to spread even farther north.

I would say Los Angeles, and Miami as well. L.A. is blocked by mountains in the north, desert in the west, and a military base in the south, but somehow I think they will find a way to sprawl towards San Diego.

It better not! :nono:

San Diego still has a lot of land, but pretty soon the only open land wil be in the military bases and mission trails park.

God forbid they realize that people have been building UP for centuries to solve this problem.

You know one thesis regarding the cause of the fall of the Mayan empire? They built on the land they used to farm.

Doesn't San Angeles already exist? I've driven 5 from LA to San Diego a few times and never noticed a whole lot of undeveloped land.

Orange county runs right into San Diego county. You drive down 5, hit San Clemente, Camp Pendleton, then Oceanside. Besides Camp Pendleton, there really isn't anything separating LA from SD.
