For most people, I would assume the carolinas would have them the most. on the highway they are rare, but pulling over at a resteruant in inland NC, a large needle palm graced the entrance door. I have seen palms as far north as NJ and have seen pics of them in norwalk connecticut. wild palms however cant be found north of extreme south virginia. trunking palmettos are native to bald head island NC. they were once native to cape hatteras, but the locals cut them all down to eat the palmetto cabbage years ago. here are some at bald head island.

What about California's Central Valley?

I'd assume the "palm line" would be somewhere around Yuba City or Chico. Anyone know for sure?

You'll see them in any Southern city below Tennessee, but along the coasts is where you'll see them more. I also believe the Gulf Coast has the most diverse collection of Palms.

Driving south on I-75 through Georgia, I recall beginning to see palms around Valdosta and then pretty continuously from there into Florida.

I've seen palms as far north as Columbia, South Carolina.

SC State Capital Building has some tall Sabal Palmettos.

It is the state tree, even featured on the SC state flag.

Must also be slightly milder than Atlanta, I didn't see any there.

Travelling south on I-75 in Georgia, south of Macon,
Cordele has them, north of Valdosta.

It is, 5F warmer pretty much year round, and I think 1 hardiness Zone higher (8B vs 8A), Atlanta is on the Piedmont and 1,000ft while Columbia is at the edge of the Coastal Plain around 200ft and much closer to the Atlantic
