Living in "Midwestern FL" is easiest. The rest of FL leaves much to be desired, IMO. Latin American, Southern, and Northeastern cultures are all, er, acquired tastes.

Latin America FL could also be Central FL now, not just Miami.

No the midwestern people are all closed up indoors- keep windows closed and never sit in the porch or lanais- have pools for looks and are not community minded,,, I'm a native and lived all 3 cities-and have family in the panhandle. keep Florida what it is --open shirts, shorts, bathing suits and a suntan and lots of people mingling

IME, all of FL is like how you described -- "indoors-y," transient, no real sense of community, rude, "all show," etc. Open shirts, shorts, swimsuits, suntans, mingling -- that's Southern CA, my dear.

Don't get it twisted.

I hate to admit it, but I have to agree with this.
Compared to southern Cal---Floridians are very indoorsy. .

I was in southeast Florida a few years ago. So many New Jersey and New York accents I thought I took a wrong turn on the highway and drove up north. That area of Florida is definitely northeastern based. Same true for west florida being Midwestern. Fort Meyers is all Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin etc. The premise of this thread is definitely true.
