Would the judge of the sunniest and warmest year-round cities in Florida be: SURVIVAL OF WARM-BLOODED INSECTS/ANIMALS AND WARM SUNNY GROWING CONDITIONS OF FLOWERS/PLANTS ACCORDING TO NATIONAL STANDARDS OF GROWERS AND BREEDERS? ANY GROWERS OR INSECT/ANIMAL AUTHORITIES OUT THERE? great topic and thanks for all the input since I am sick and need warm and sunny to survive now in the later part of my life. thanks again!

Warmest Florida cities are Key West and Miami/Miami Beach. Both are Zone 11 hardiness USDA and have the warmest winter temps.

That is the exact question I want to know . I feel tired of the hot humid Orlando summers . I agree that inland is worse than near the beach but I also want to add that I believe an area with lots of trees would be a bit cooler too. Unfortunately the closer you are to the beach the fewer the large trees are. I love the old oak trees with the Spanish moss in Orlando . I have been told Altamonte Springs and other areas of Seminole county have a lot of trees. Sitting under a tree cuts down on the summer heat a lot.

Does anyone know where you can find colder winters, a beach breeze and beautiful large shade trees in one city in Florida?

Default cold weather map florida

I found other maps that show the weather patterns of Florida. They are a little different from the arbor day map
Bill's Garden

I was born up north but haven't seen snow since I was a child. I miss snow but feel afraid to drive in it especially due to black ice. One reason I have chosen to live in Florida is because we don't have black ice at least I think we don't . Has anyone heard of black ice ever forming on a road in a city in Florida?

Fernandina Beach, northeast of Jacksonville would be a good choice. Fernandina Historic District | Amelia Island Living & Travel eMagazine

St Augustine/St Augustine Beach would be another.

Inland areas like Orlando have hotter, more humid summers, with a lack of a breeze. BUT, they also get chillier in the wintertime than coastal areas, especially at night. North FL tends to be hotter in summer, cooler in winter than South FL. The Gulf side in summer tends to be more humid, hotter, less of a cool breeze, more bugs than the Atlantic side. This is because the Gulf is warmer in summer than the Atlantic. In winter, the Gulf is cooler than the Atlantic side, so the Gulf coast's weather is drier and cooler, while the Atlantic side tends to be warmer and more humid, still with a nice breeze. All of FL gets some cold spells (even the Keys), but it never really lasts long enough to do serious damage to tropical plants like coconuts in South FL.
