What time zone is Florida?

Florida is divided into two time zones. Most of the state, including cities like Miami and Orlando, follows the Eastern Time Zone (ET), which is UTC-5 during Standard Time and UTC-4 during Daylight Saving Time. However, the western part of Florida, including Pensacola, observes the Central Time Zone (CT), which is UTC-6 during Standard Time and UTC-5 during Daylight Saving Time. This time zone division is due to the state's geographical breadth, with the east following Eastern Time and the west using Central Time.

Note that the start and end dates of daylight saving time can change


The history of area codes in Florida reflects the state's dynamic growth and evolving telecommunications needs. Starting with just two area codes, 305 and 813, in 1947, Florida's expanding population led to numerous splits and introductions of new area codes over the years. Significant milestones included the introduction of area codes like 904, 407, 941, 561, 352, 850, 321, 863, 754, 386, and 689, each serving distinct regions across the state. These changes were essential to ensure a sufficient supply of telephone numbers while accommodating Florida's sprawling urban centers and rapidly developing communities, ultimately shaping the state's modern telecommunications landscape.
