I work with several born and raised Washingtonians and they agree with you about what DC is. I was amazed hearing them. I was telling them they aren't the "South" like Mississippi, Alabama, or even North Carolina. But they still believed they are Southern and that DC is the South. Interesting to hear. Me personally, I don't feel DC is Southern.

DC is cursed. Southerners think they're yanks, northerners think they're hicks. It's not "traditionally" southern by any means but there are traces of southern culture found in it. And hey, drive 30 minutes south and you can find full-blown banjo-pluckin' sister-chasin' hicks.

DC has elements of the Northeast and South in it built wise. I remember in the rowhouse thread, Kidphilly said DC has nice rowhomes with a Southern vibe to it. I didn't know what he was talking about until I actually saw what he meant. Some rowhomes have nice size porches for you sit around, drink lemonade or w/e, and people watch. Uncommon in the Northeast, I assume, right? But then, you will have some rowhomes that look straight out of Philly or New York.

Also, my manager from South Carolina who is in his 40s did not believe DC was Southern. But again, my co-workers disagreed with him.

Oh yes! The idea that DC is "northern" is quite new.

The Redskins Fight Song used to end with the lyric, "Fight for Old Dixie!" after all.

I visit Philly and Boston a lot and know my area and each and every visit I make to D.C. makes me feel like I am completely out of the Northeast. Not to say D.C. feels like Jackson Mississippi but it feels VERY southern where Philly, NYC, and Boston dont

They both seem southern to me (accent, vibe) DC a bit more than Baltimore.
