I think certain parts of north Florida are influenced by Atlanta.

It's funny how you say Atlanta's influence stops at the state border as if the Florida state police are pulling over tractor trailers coming into the state from Georgia that are trying to smuggle Atlantan influence into Florida, LOL. The state border is only a political border, not a cultural border.

care to explain how Atlanta influences certain parts of northern Florida? I'm curious because to me Jacksonville influences most of the northeastern part of Florida not Atlanta.
