Orlando is not "northern Florida." It is considered Central Florida and bears little resemblance to Northern Florida or the Panhandle.

Anywhere on the coast of Florida is vulnerable to hurricanes.

Northern FL (imo) is above Ocala. Ocala is considered north-central FL, maybe up towards Gainesville and across would be considered North FL. The panhandle, Jax and surrounding areas, St. Aug., etc... and all the little towns in between.

I wouldnt consider North FL diverse, but if you look further south into Orlando and that area... you will find more diversity. Central FL is now, and becoming even more so, heavily hispanic, but there are also Blacks, Asians, Whites, Canadian/French, Russians, etc...

ok so what areas in your opinion would be good to look into i have two kids one is 7 the other is 1 1/2. Right now we live in a mixed area and the schools are really good im looking for something similar. We just want to live in a warmer climate and the houses are so much cheaper out there then in NY.

Tallahassee is another option with good schools and a low unemployment rate right now. Tallahassee is very family friendly.

Schools are very hit and miss. But since you wanna buy a house in FL "because they are cheaper", and you "just want to live in a warm climate", the possibilities are endless. lol.
