Any place where the majority of the population as a southern accent.
Any place where cow tippin' and eating chitlin's are commonplace
Any place where even white people say "y'all"
Any place where you can find yourself some real authentic sweet tea

Okay, as someone born in the South...cowtipping isn't Southern. Matter of fact, I've read that it's a myth. I really don't know anyone who has done that before. What's next, manufacturing moonshine and eating things that were ran over?

no, cow tipping is not a myth. it isn't easy, though, you need several people, and you've gotta make sure that the cow doesn't know you're there.

Good points, except for the 2nd, that's just ridiculous...

I would add, any place where a significant portion of the population is Southern Baptist.

The areas directly South of St. Louis seem very Southern. For people who don't know any better, they'd think they were still in the South. There are differences in accent, food, and religion though, but most people don't notice these kinds of things if they're just passing through.

As a southerner, I'm well aware that our region is characterized to an extreme variant of our overall culture when portrayed in the media. In fact, there are many elements or types of southern culture, but there is an overall, overriding southern culture that is noticeable in our regional foods, accent, as well as our form of worship.

So, what's the most culturally southern place outside of the south that you have experienced?
