I have some examples of regional enclaves in other parts of the USA, at least in culture.

Southern enclaves: Cairo IL, eastern TX,
Northern enclaves: South Florida, Cary NC, Northern VA

Enclaves of what? Transplanted Europeans, transplanted Northerners, transplanted Southerners, Westerners, etc.??

Dallas has or used to have big suburbs of transplanted upper midwesterners.

In the Bay Area,
one need only go to an A's game when they play either the Yankees or Red Sox to be reminded of how many East Coasters now live here. Practically most of the stadium is full of their fans.

Yeah, they're disgustingly obnoxious at those games, too.

In New Mexico and Arizona, there are many Indian reservations. Navajo (Dine, as they call themselves), Apache, Hopi, different groups of Pueblo Indians, Havasupai/ Hualapai (they actually live at the bottom of the Grand Canyon), and Pima/Tohono O'odham.

Why? If they just went back home their living conditions would improve most likely.

Southwest Florida (Sarasota, Naples, Ft. Myers) is home to many midwesterners. Many union retirees from the auto plants in Michigan moved to southwest Florida. There are northeasterners here too, but midwesterners make up the bulk of the non-native population.

South Florida and parts of eastern Florida (Ft. Lauderdale, Weston, Port St. Lucie, Palm Coast) is home to many northeasterners. Seriously, when I lived in Palm Coast, I felt like it was New Jersey with palm trees.

Generally the coastal regions of Florida have many midwestern or northeastern enclaves, while interior Florida has more of a native, southern, midwestern and northeastern blend.
