What is your favorite South, Coastal City?

To define it, the South Coast line ends at Charleston, SC. Yes, I know SC, NC and VA are still Southern States, however the coast there is more considered the Mid-Atlantic Region Coast.

So from Charleston, SC down to Miami and Key West over to Brownsville, TX.

Also, we are only talking cities UNDER 1 million Metro population.
So, Jacksonville, Miami, Tampa, New Orleans, Houston and Brownsville are all disqualified...
Also, doesn't mean it's RIGHT ON the beach/coast. Could be a little in from the coast (like New Orleans and Houston)


What is your reason for choosing the town?

Not really. Wilmington is as Southern as they come.

You don't get it. The point is not whether or not NC is "Southern" or not. Here, it is not counted because I'm starting the poll from Charleston South, and leaving anywhere north with the Mid-Atlantic Region ("Southern as they come" or not).

From Charleston southward? So are you also considering Myrtle Beach to be mid-Atlantic?

Pretty strange designations here. And NC isn't generally recognized as a mid-Atlantic state but rather a Southeastern state.

Wilmington shares similarities with SC and the South while places on the OBX like Kitty Hawk have a Mid-Atlantic feel to them.

I think OBX is a little too sparse to have a mid-Atlantic feel, since I tend to think of places like Annapolis, Ocean City, and such.

I voted Daytona Beach and Galveston. Those are the only Gulf coast cities i've been too and I enjoyed both of them.

Probably a tie between Savannah and Charleston. Also am a big fan of Miami, New Orleans, and Houston.
