Miss USA Will Be Held in Doral For Next Three Years

Categories: News

Miami Beach was home to the Miss USA competition for over a decade in the Sixties, and pageant owner Donald Trump announced today that the pageant will return next year to our neck of the woods for a three-year run. This time, however, it won't be held on the beach, but rather in the glamorous suburb of Doral.

Suburban sprawl may not be most obvious location for America's second most famous beauty pageant, but this move is all about corporate synergy. Remember, Trump now also owns the Doral Golf Resort & Spa. The Trump property will of course be host to the competition.

Is Doral now secretly Miami-Dade's new power center? The Miami Herald officially moved there last month.

OK, probably not a power center. But outdated institutions Americans by and large ignore now like beauty pageants and daily newspapers go to to stick together, we guess.

At least some of the coverage shows the triple A where it actually is and not the same shots of Ocean Drive over and over

No big deal. The basketball community keeps referring to downtown Miami as "South Beach". Why not Doral as "Miami"?
