Default Where is the north/south Florida line?

Our first time in or around North Florida and the entire family says, "It doesn't feel like Florida."

We're enjoying St Augustine, its a great quaint old town but something about it is missing.

So where's the invisible line between north and south Florida?

It's called Central Florida!

Gainesville to Tampa = Central FL. Everything North, is, well, North. And South of Tampa = S. Florida.

I would consider anything north of Ocala to be N FL and anything south of Sebring/Sarasota/Fort Pierce to be S FL.

I would say State Road 60 my self but the FWC Splits the Spring Turkey season into two halves. North FL zone and South FL zone. They use State Road 70 as the line FWIW

Your issue is that St. Augustine is a tourist trap, the entire town is amiss imo

You're up in the north east corner...pretty much in Georgia. Those short fan desert palms, and lots of tall grass. The beaches can be confused with anywhere along central coast USA.

Now quickly go look at shots of say..Captiva Island, or Bokelia (little pine island)...look at the much more tropical lush green, taller nice Areca palm trees, nicer beaches. And undoubtedly nicer beaches.

Not "A" tourist trap, THE original tourist trap before Disney. Now, St. Augustine is a neat, quaint area. It's reinvented itself, and done a good job of it.

Palm Beach is south Florida..Stuart is kinda north Florida, Port St. Lucie is south Florida, Sebastian is north Florida, and everything north of that is north Florida.

I agree but you forgot Central Florida.

We are the most important part of the state and the entire country because we will decide the 2020 election here : )

I get exactly what you're asking.
I've lived in both on the east coast and would personally divide that line right around Cocoa Beach. Probably at I-50

The further south you go in Florida, the further "North" it feels.

St. Augustine is where south Floridians go to escape "Florida".
