You'd have a tie between SoCal and the Gulf Coast region. Lots of palms and a lot of different concepts that you don't find further inland.

Florida and California are able to grow the most varieties of palm trees in the US outside Hawaii. Texas also has palms but the winters can be too cold for the more tender palms that thrive in Florida & So. California.

it's actually quite rare to drive up a SoCal neighborhood or down a small stretch of a main road/corridor/freeway and not spot a palm tree/bundle of palm trees of at least one variety. it's especially difficult to avoid spotting palm trees the closer to the coast you get as well as in middle to high income areas. suprisingly, poor areas are overly blanketed in palm trees as well.

i can't speak for southern florida but i'm guessing the same can be said.

Not that many palms are indigineous to the US...FL and CA imported most of theirs. The Sabal (Cabbage) Palm is an exception in FL.
Even the Caribbean was pretty much scrub when discovered...they had to import theirs as well.
