South Carolina. Virginia has little in common with Pennsylvania.

South Carolina. The only thing PA and VA have in common mainly is that are both commonwealth states.

Historically it was certainly SC but today, I'm not so sure. Despite the size differences, I don't think Richmond and Columbia, and Hampton Roads and Coastal SC, are terribly different but SC has no answer whatsoever for NoVA, which is the probably the major differentiator.

NOVA would probably have more cultural affinity with the eastern edge of Pennsylvania.

I could see people in extreme southern Virginia not being too far out of their element in South Carolina. Southern Virginia and South Carolina have that aristocratic southern vibe.

south carolina by far. northern virginia is still pretty southern around loudoun county and certain counties and I dont think there is anything like northern virginia in Pennsylvania either. I hope there isnt much like fairfax county and northern virginia in many places around america, its just a huge traffic jam and awful over development and very transient. Its definitely still got some nice places but the gridlock is the worst in the country in my opinion

Northern Virginia is not Southern. I agree that Virginia as a whole state is more similar to South Carolina.

The outer edges of NoVA are Southern. Culturally it gets muddled the closer you get to DC, but all the Southern artifacts certainly have gone nowhere.

NOVA and Pittsburgh have a lot in common when it comes to attitude. Both are very status conscious and the same terrible drivers with road rage.
