The city of Miami, being right on Bicscayne bay has the benefit of a breeze coming off the Atlantic. This however does not apply to areas further inland, towards the everglades. These areas are generally some of the hottest temps in the state.

yes, generally. but jacksonville is recorded as the hottest city in the state. ironically, it is the farthest north... and just as far east on the water.

Because the Gulfstream (and it's moderating breezes) swerves away from the coast of Florida just south of Jacksonville, which is why the city (and St Augustine) has the lowest probability of a hurricane strike of all SE coastal cities.

I wouldn't let this be a way of determining where you choose to live in FL. If you work for Geico or some other big company in LAL, don't worry, they have airconditioners If you are going to be working outside most of the time, don't worry too much, clouds and afternoon thunderstorms will usually take care of the temps right when they are hitting their worst. The really good thing about LAL though is if you get to hot, just run down the road to the beach.

Lakeland is Landlocked and tends to have hotter days due to the higher elevation. Same for Orlando and much of Central Florida. Very little breeze to keep us cool. Like today its for casted to be 87 degrees. Nuttin abnormal

Orlando vs South Florida is almost no different in the summer. I grew up down there and it feels every bit as hot and humid...in fact the sun is slightly more intense down there. The temperatures are slightly higher in Orlando, yes by a couple degrees, but having experienced both there is almost no difference...hot and humid is hot and humid. Now, winter is a different story. Central Florida winters are amazing, and far superior to South Florida which barely dips into cool temperatures.
