NoVA is the only "unSouthern" part of the state. And a lot of people from GA and SC do consider VA a Southern state, and so what if some of them didn't? Some of those same people might not consider Kentucky or Arkansas Southern either. That doesn't mean it's not so. And tons of maps have VA in the South.

I've got news for you...most people in GA, SC, and the rest of the South certainly DO consider Virginia to be southern; anyone with a high school education can look at a map and see that it's part of the South.

$$and the national weather service says va is in the mid atlantic˘˘, so what??? the south is cotton, spanish moss,... i said in an earlier post that southside va is, southern but the rest of the state is not. the civil war was 150 YEARS AGO.. va is geographically in the middle... i lived in charleston, sc, most people in that city didnt consider va the south. va has many yankees that have helped evaporate the culture. bc va borders the mason dixon. i was a history major in school and illinois contributed to the south... but that doesnt make the southern end of it a southern state... if u actually havent lived in the deep south then u have no room to talk

1. I've lived in Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. I have never in all my years heard anyone try to say that Virginia is not southern - until now.

2. If you gauge the South by cotton and Spanish Moss, then you've proven that Virginia IS definitely southern:

Spanish Moss is a coastal thing, not a southern thing..."Spanish Moss ranges from the southeastern United States (southern Virginia and eastern Maryland) to Argentina, growing wherever the climate is warm enough and has a relatively high average humidity."

Not too familiar with a lot of the cities in NC, but i feel its economy is better than VA.

But there is something about NC that is just really plain and boring to me. VA "appears" to have more diversity and character to me.

In VA, you have DC/NOVA, Richmond, Hampton Roads, Roanoke, Southern VA, etc. which are all very, very different. Even here in tidewater, each of the cities have a different vibe and feel to them. You can go from the beach, to the suburbs, to the country, and over to the inner city all within 15-20 minutes. And there is always something to do or something going on.

Im sure NC is not as boring and plain as it may seem to me, but im just not that familiar with it.
