The capital is Tallahassee, located in the northwestern panhandle. he great majority of the population lives in urban areas, and only a tiny percentage lives on farms. The densest concentration is along the extensive Miami–Fort Lauderdale–Boca Raton–West Palm Beach urban complex in the southeast. This area appears to many observers to be duplicating the less desirable aspects of the great urban belts burgeoning in other parts of the country. On the west coast the Tampa–St. Petersburg metropolitan area contains another concentration of population. Farther north the Daytona Beach–Cape Canaveral–Orlando triangle is central Florida’s dominant urban area, Jacksonville is the major hub of the upper east coast and southeastern Georgia, and Pensacola dominates the western panhandle and part of southern Alabama. Lesser metropolitan areas—including Tallahassee, Gainesville, and Fort Myers—are hubs of local influence.
