Why was Florida omitted? It's one of the larger states. Larger than PA, OH, IL, and might've even surpassed NY.

It has nothing to do with size, rather "All American" feel. Florida has a high minority population which by definition sort of disqualifies from the term.

Also too unique. You can't find palm trees but in a handful of American states.

I would say Ohio. Ohio really is exemplary of American culture.

Urban and rural, farms and forest, rich and poor, republican and democrat. Ohio has it all, really.

Florida's coastline is over 1300 miles, that's longer than the coastlines of Washington, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi combined!

Longer coastline than California and Texas together.

I would say every state is as all-American as the rest. I mean, how can any one state be more American then another?
They all have cities surrounded by American style suburbs. Small rural towns. Main street. 24 hour convenient stores and gas stations. State fairs. Fourth of July parades. Farmland. Forests. Parks. Political mixes of conservative/liberal. Farmers markets. Thanksgiving. Mall Santas. High school football games. Camp grounds. Cheezy tourist attractions. And many other things considered "Americana" can be found in every state. Larger states might have more of some particular things but that doesn't make them more American then the smaller ones.
