Gainesville, Fl is also known has Hogtown.

Miami has been called the American Rivieria in the past.

I've always loved the Redneck Rivieria moniker used for the NW Florida gulf coast cities.

I can tell youv'e listened to a few radio stations while in Columbia. Not very many people outside the area know that it's called that.

By the way my birthplace is know as "Brick City", Newark, New Jersey.

I thought this term was for the MS gulf coast, like Biloxi, Gulfport, and Pascagoula? That's where the casinos are anyway, so it makes more sense to me.
