So there's already a Everglades National Park -- any reason why this shouldn't redirect there? (WT-en) Majnoona 14:32, 3 July 2006 (EDT)

This article was linked as a region of South Florida, although I'm not sure if it's a good one as the area between Lake Okeechobee and the Everglades includes a huge swath of land. I'd be fine with removing that link and making this a redirect. -- (WT-en) Ryan 14:51, 3 July 2006 (EDT)
A map would help, but it looks like the intention of this region was to cover the part of South Florida that isn't populated by Ocean-/Gulf-coast beach resorts, with the Everglades being a subset of that. Yeah, it's lot of real estate, but there's not much civilization there. - (WT-en) Todd VerBeek 16:55, 27 July 2006 (EDT)

Region name change[edit]

This exact region is called "Florida Heartland" at Wikipedia. I would propose we change the name from "Everglades and Lake Okeechobee" which is rather unwieldy and I'm guessing not really descriptive of the northern portion of the area, especially Hardee County.

Seems OK to me, although I'm a non-resident who has only visited the state a handful of times. The current name seems to indicate that the entire Everglades is included, which probably isn't what we want based on the existing regional breakdown for Florida. -- (WT-en) Ryan • (talk) • 17:13, 4 August 2007 (EDT)
I agree that we change the region to be called 'Florida Heartland',reason being, that this region of Florida is not only composed of the Everglades, and Lake Okeechobee, but also of other inland counties — DeSoto, Glades, Hardee, Hendry, Highlands. We then could link them also to Florida Heartland

Number of cities[edit]

There should not be more than 9 cities mentioned here. I don't know which cities are the most relevant so please someone who does: trim them down Hobbitschuster (talk) 20:01, 15 February 2015 (UTC)Reply

As this is a bottom-level region, it's fine to list more than 9 cities. See Wikivoyage:Avoid long lists#Groups of regions. Ikan Kekek (talk) 20:03, 15 February 2015 (UTC)Reply
