Default Which area of the USA has the best soccer culture?

I have been enjoying soccer for the past 4 years now since growing up in a football strong community. The NFL means nothing to me now and I enjoy the game of soccer wherever played. I think it is a great sport to play and is very international and opening to many young people.

Anyways, anyone have any idea what area of the USA is soccer most popular, possibly even surpassing football in popularity?
