What parts of Miami Dade isn't Latin American? Are there any parts of MD where one can go and not feel like you're in a part of Latin America? If there is, I haven't found it yet.

The Midtown area has young hipsters and artists which conforms with the hipster scene in other US cities. Coconut Grove, Miami Beach, and South Miami are other areas that don't feel overwhelmingly like Latin America. There will obviously be lots of people of Latino heritage in these neighborhoods but they are culturally American as many of them are second or third generation Latino Americans.

Everything north of Gainesville is considered the "deep south" of Florida. The panhandle is FloraBama and Northeastern Fl is NoFloSoGa. The whole damned state has way too many Ohioans. I sometimes wonder if there is anybody over 50 left in Ohio.

And here's where I make my grand sweeping statement that the reason Florida has such a trashy, crazy reputation isn't because of Floridians themselves. It's because of the droves of people from Ohio that move here - all backwards, crazy, awful species of people that they are

(with some ok ones thrown in too, but for the most part, every single person I've met in FL that turned out to be bad news... guess where they moved here from?)

Yes--it goes hand in hand with 'Nobody speaks English there' and 'you have to speak Spanish to live there.' But that's ok--it keeps the Xenophobes away.

Don't get it twisted.
not where I tread -ONLY the US transplants and from Europe are like that in Fl-why- I have NO idea??- when they move to CA they dam go naked-- ! In S-FL one BBQ gets an instant 20+ people -I never had small get together -ever- all kinds of family showed up with the invitee- I made friends in the streets - at work we all played soft ball or bowled- in either case. maybe its the hurricanes that cause you to become a community. ?
Does California get younger transplants? I think we get many older folks who come here to die- but NOT from the NorthEAST- those folks like to party- I was raised in Miami beach- I saw them growing up.
