They're equal. With the exception of pockets of transplants, most any part of Arkansas is quite southern. The two areas you mention are outside the Ozarks, the only region with any significant outside influence, and that's limited.

More southern? I would say the areas of Monticello, Crossett, Dumas, Warren. Rural, hard working, good people.

Little Rock suburbs are pretty durn southern. north and south suburbs you'llbe satisfied. biscuts and gravy and catfish everywhere. cabot, austin, ward, beebe, searcy, batesville, newport, bryant, benton, maumelle, vilonia, conway, el paso, hot springs, arkadelphia, texarkana, malvern, tons of country places in AR. pretty much the whole state south of sayyyy mountain view. although mountain view is indeed country as hell.

My opinion and that is all it is: NWA, for the most part isn't very southern in culture period. Probably because so many who call it home originated from other places throughout our country. Most of the time we have traveled through the southern part of the state we have met and talked with people who have lived most of their lives in the region. Of course, I believe the size of the city makes some difference. That being said, certainly Little Rock is more southern than say, Rogers or Bentonville.

This topic reminds of one that was debated and heatedly not long ago, about is AR period really southern or more mid western. I have a feeling the same will happen with this thread..

They do love their catfish and big pickup trucks here. lol Another sign is religious afflilations are mostly Protestant and Baptist. When you go up to NWA, you start to find a lot more Catholic churches.
