The Truth in Fiction?

My novel takes place on the Florida panhandle,  in the 1950’s, and I was born in the late 1970’s. How much time should I spend accurately describing my fiction novels setting? Fantasy writers talk about Dragons, and aliens, well beyond any truthful experience. I’ve pondered if I’m close to accurate, but slightly off will I feel backlash from readers native to my novel’s location? Possibly not.
