You can drive around parts of Florida and think it looks like Maine or Hawaii, that don't make it either.
Culturally there are some pockets but the State of Florida is so influenced by influx residents and their dependants and offspring. A native Floridian is more likely to be from NYC, Chicago, Trinidad or Chili
The food is mixed with more Cuban as you go Orlando south
Yeah there are jobs not tourist related in O town, but you can't ignore the large tourist influence
Jax is different but it's not Savannah or Atlanta
Tampa isn't turn of last century St Pete, it's s big melting pot city in itself. Sure you can go a few miles east and your in the Heart of Florida, but that's a mix of housing and farms with natural barriers and borders
Yes we did have a Gov sworn into office on a day with freezing temps, but Tallahassee is still more melting pot then Birmingham or Mobile
Then you hit the navy town at Pensacola and that's again melting pot
