Can you name this picturesque American beach town with a majority minority?

Fort Lauderdale is the second most diverse city in the United States, after Queens, NY, where the future is here: the minority is the majority.

And unlike Queens, Hello Sunny experiences nearly 365 days of warm water and white sand bliss. With over 300 miles of canals weaving throughout, and miles of white sand beaches, it is an outdoor paradise.
