Some of northern and western Lake County (minus The Villages). Most of Marion County, and a good chunk of Sumter County. Also look in Okeechobee and Glades County.

How far south? Here's some towns to start with:
Williston
Hawthorne and Keystone Heights
Dunnellion
Ocklawaha
Umatilla
and Reddick.

You'll find if you stay away from your largers cities, you'll find a better ratio of natives.

I know a lot of native folks, myself included, that left Pinellas County to live in Citrus County.......Inverness, Homasassa, Lecanto. Citrus is kind of like what Pinellas was 30 years ago, some breathing room around here.

Brevard & Osceola County on the cattle ranches where the word cracker originates-referring to the ranchers cracking their whips to move the cattle.
