That is very safe to say. This map is just to prove that Southern Florida does fall into a Tropical climate. Not that there is a "big" difference between the two anyways .

For example, both LA and San Fran. has mediterreanean climate, because it has dry summers and wet winters.
Both D.C and Orlando has has humid subtropical because avg. low temp in coldest month is above 32 F/0C
Except according to weather.com the average January low in DC is 27 degrees. Orlando's average January low is 50 degrees. I think I know where I would rather be in January

I'm new to Florida and while I won't argue about the various climates of this fine state, I'll just post some cool climate & temperature maps:

I think that map is a little old because now more of South Florida is in the Tropical Climate and as far north as Southern Connecticut is in the Subtropical Climate.


On Topic: Florida most likely has the most Palm Trees because Hawaii as a lot of different climates and is smaller than Florida.
