What are time zones and how many does the state of Florida have?
A time zone is a region of the Earth that has adopted the same standard time, usually referred to as the local time. Most adjacent time zones are one hour apart. By convention, time zones are computed according to their relationship to the Meridian Line at Greenwich, England. Florida has two time zones. Most of the state is in the Eastern Time Zone. But the western part of the Panhandle is in the Central Time Zone. Southern Gulf County is in the Eastern while northern Gulf County is in the Central.
