What Florida Looks Like Today

The ZIP codes most/least like Florida overall.

Mike Vogel | 4/27/2018

The five ZIP codes in Florida with the LEAST diversity:

32692 — Suwannee, Dixie County

This ZIP covers the mouth of the Suwannee, north of Cedar Key in the Big Bend area of Florida. The area is small, aging, almost entirely white and is one of the few places in Florida with negative population growth.

34228 — Longboat Key, Sarasota County

It’s one of Florida’s wealthiest and whitest communities. It’s also old. Median age: 72.4.

34215 — Cortez, Manatee County

The tip of Bradenton leading out to Bradenton Beach. It’s like Longboat Key demographically, just not as much.

32648 — Horseshoe Beach, Dixie County

Just up the coast from Suwannee, about halfway to Steinhatchee. The ZIP is demographically similar to Longboat Key and Cortez.

32209 — Jacksonville, Duval County

This ZIP, northwest of Jacksonville’s downtown, is overwhelmingly black and, for Florida, relatively young.
