    Is Miami's Timezone Always EST?


    Hello;

    With daylight save etc, does Miami timezone always stay EST?

    So if I have this on top of the app, will it always be accurate?

    PHP Code:
    date_default_timezone_set('America/New_York'); 
    OR
    PHP Code:
    date_default_timezone_set('US/Eastern');

    No. ES(tandard)T means UTC-5. During daylight saving time they use ED(aylight)T which means UTC-4.

    Maybe. But do not use US/Eastern.
