Montgomery without a doubt. Mobile and Birmingham are next, and are about even. Huntsville is the least culturally Southern city in the state. Huntsville is a strange mix of Southern culture mixed with Northern Virginia and Dallas-Ft. Worth. This city has unusually strong economic ties with those two large metropolitan areas despite their distance.

Those two metros that you named are southern. NoVa is a little southern, while DFW is more southern.

But they're also mixed. NoVA is part Northeastern while DFW is part Midwestern/Great Plains.

I don't think Dallas feels southern at all. I have been thorough there a couple of times. Midwestern yes.

DFW, to me is southern. It's just like Atlanta because alot of transplanrs live there, making it seem like southern. Midwestern, no because midwestern cities seem a little out dated to me, expect Chicago. DFW is southern because of its accent and food. I think that Huntsville does in fact have a little DFW in it.

Have you ever lived in DFW or been to any city in the midwest? Having transplants does not make a city southern. If you are making that argument then Miami is southern as it is mostly transplants

Not all Midwestern cities have a dated feel to them. The Midwest can be divided in two, with Chicago split down the middle. DFW looks and feels a lot like the cities in the western half of the Midwest: St Louis, Kansas City (DFW is like KC on steroids if you ask me), and the western and northern suburbs of Chicago.

I think the thread asked for the most southern ALABAMA city... I see alot of metro areas listed that are nowhere NEAR Alabama. And what in the world does the slave trade have to do with which city is more Southern?! You want to be really technical- then who STARTED it?! Everybody always thinks their particular area is the "most" (whatever). And the panhandle of Florida is NOT in Alabama, either- though I wish it was!

Welcome to the C-D. Now meet KE aka A&M Bulldawg, he's the starter of alot of non-sense << "most" (whatever)>>, and don't you dare have a different opinion.
