The panhandle is often referred to as 'lower Alabama" by residents _ in Alabama. We didn't like the weather there either.

We love the panhandle, but not in winter. There's a reason rates drop by 50%(or more) in many panhandle parks over the winter.

For the best temps. in winter you need to be below I-4, which intersects the state. We've stayed in the Ocala area before, but this year we went further south to Frostproof, which was 8-10 degrees warmer than Ocala.

Panhandle is often 15F colder then the Ocala area in winter. And there is the wind chill also. Its all part of the Redneck Rivera. East coast of Florida south of Orlando is nice weather in winter.
