10. Miami-Miami Beach-Kendall (FL)

Population: 2.4 million
Diversity index: 71.1

Miami has a rich cultural tapestry that dates back through several centuries, including Native Americans, Spanish colonizers and Spanish, Italian, Jewish and Greek immigrants. And, of course, there are the Cuban refugees that arrived in this tropical city in the 1960s, settling in an area west of downtown known as Little Havana. Other Caribbean cultures have also settled here — there’s also a Little Haiti, according to Trip Advisor. This culture is reflected in Miami’s clubs, restaurants, architecture and festivals. Miami is actually home to one of the largest concentrations of international banks in the U.S. as well as several international companies.
