Coconut Palms normally start in the Cape area:

I don't know about inland...but along the East Coast of Florida, normally I don't think you would see coconut palms until you reach Cape Canaveral. I pass through the area most winters, and you have to be from the Cape south before you see coconut palms. From what I understand they really don't even like temps below 50 F for average lows, so that confines them to coastal central Florida south.

Normally, around Cape Canaveral you'll see smaller ones here and there:



I was at a hotel last year in the Cape (Cocoa Beach)...and and they had many nice ones, fruiting in January...I took these shots about (I think) 80 miles south of Ponce Inlet:
