Which region do you think has the strongest sense of pride and regional identity?

I actually wanted to delete this thread before I posted it, but going back to the Gen US forum posted it. Thought the regions were too broad. Also I was going to post a poll but went back to try to delete it.

New England.

It's the best defined region in the country. Even one could arge the definition of the South. But there is no arguing about New England's identity.

We all know exactly what and where it is. We can all recite it's history and importance. We all have a distinct image of what a New England town looks like. We can all picture the many colors of fall, or dunes down on the Cape.

New England looks and sounds like paradise to me! The only downside is the cold winters but I'm sure sitting by the fireplace and watching snow softly fall in the woods outside would be worth it.

The Strongest. People from the North East. Almost borderline cocky to us southern folks. I always wondered why it mattered that we must know how important their region is when they come down here. Like we don't give a f***. LOL.

Or Texas. But people from Texas are chilled with it though. Their cool.

It's not about which region is better, it's about which as the strongest sense of identity.

But of course someone from the South would hate New England. I've come to expect that. We all have and do.

The South, as it has the most to be proud of with more unique history, culture, music, food, and scenery than anywhere else, and great sense of independence.

um, most of us aren't as religious as other areas of the country. I think you have it backwards.
