Florida has kind of four cultures in one state, for what I can see it's, more or less, as follows:

Midwestern Florida: SW Florida and Tampa Bay
Northeastern Florida: Central Florida and all of the east except for Miami-Dade
Southern Florida: The entire panhandle, North Central Florida and the west coast north of Tampa Bay (including Pasco and Hernando counties)
Latin American Florida: Duh... Obvious isn't it?

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

Agree or disagree?

More or less I agree with the rest but this is way too broad a generalization. Central Florida is a mix of "Southern", some "Northeasterners" and an increasing Hispanic population (mostly Puerto Rican). Once north of Vero Beach on the east coast it becomes less "Northeastern" and like Central Florida rather mixed, though minus the Hispanic influence. Daytona Beach has always seemed more "Southern" to me than anything else. Palm Coast has a heavy concentration of "Northeasteners", though I would consider that an aberration when compared to St Augustine and Jacksonville, which are more diversified geographically than most cities on the coast.

Funny but yes there's some truth to it.

Generally speaking, i'd say you're pretty accurate.

I agree. I think central florida is way too much of a mix to classify that broadly. sure, the immediate orlando metro area is relatively northeastern, but there are people from everywhere In Orlando. central Florida includes areas like bithlo, christmas, tangerine, sorrento, etc that are quite southern. And New Smyrna, Daytona, Samsula, pretty much anywhere north of I-4 is quite southern IMO. But to the OP:If I had to make a generalization that broad, I'd say that's relatively fair.

West Pasco and West Hernando is chock full of New Yorkers. Probably the most numerous species there.

Oh, this is useful, thanks.

I suppose that inevitably, some ignorant person will come along and say no, there are no differences between any areas anywhere....

Apparently a lot of people think that everything in Miami-Dade is Latin-American. It gets very boring hearing this over and over again
