My knowledge of Florida dates back to the early 80s when I lived there for a few months. I saw a lot of the state from Cocoa and Orlando, and up to Jacksonville. I lived in St. Augustine. Just in terms of what looked like great places to live, I'll name a couple of towns. Altamonte Springs. That was pretty much the only place I saw with actual hills and rolling topography. The area seemed a bit upscale too. Allandale. Just south of Port Orange. A clean, pretty, neat-looking town. St. Augustine. Very unique due to the Spanish architecture. The people there were quite friendly and easy-going. Keep in mind, though, this was 40 years ago. Things may have changed a lot since.
Allandale & St. Augustine are probably Zone 9a and Altamonte Springs might just squeak into 9b.
