Latin American Florida: Duh... Obvious isn't it?

And then you have the Keys which is kind of unique in Florida.

Agree or disagree?
The keys is like the New Orleans spicy Florida

Fascinating topic. I’ve lived in Florida for a year and a half (from Atlanta). The state is very transient and has a constant flow of tourists and snowbirds here from up north. More of the state is Southern than people on this thread are admitting. You can’t really segment the whole state into these exclusive regional and ethnic cultures. Most of the northern influence is limited to the coast whether it’s Sarasota or Palm Beach or wherever. Once you venture inland within these same counties, it gets more native Floridian/Southern. All the major cities are diverse, but not devoid of Southern culture. People tend to forget the native African American population that is Southern as well. It’ll always be transient especially because of the retirees, but honestly they’re only here temporarily living out the rest of their lives. The natives will always be here.

Agree or disagree?
Disagree. There is Dixie Florida and The Floribbean. State Road 40 is the dividing line. Dixie Florida is the zone historically known for being Alabama-Georgia Jr its the area of the state first developed as a spill over from the cotton states. Then you have the part of the state discovered during World War 2. The part I call the Floribbean. The swamps. The wetlands. The part closest to the Caribbean islands.

I would take your list and break it down like this
Southern Florida = Dixie Florida

The Floribbean
SW Florida and Tampa Bay
Central Florida
Miami-Dade
Latin American Florida
