As a whole Washington DC as more in common with the state of Maryland than it does with the state of Virginia.

I think of DC as its own place, separate from either state, but the two states have parts that are "in the DC area".

Pretty much because Maryland is smaller though. Hardly any Marylanders I know see it that way, unless they're from Montgomery County (which also happens to be the part of Maryland considered the most un-Maryland-like by other Marylanders).

Here's a visual representation of the counties in the Washington-Baltimore-Northern Virginia CSA:

That's quite an accurate map of economic ties, but DC-like culture is much more confined.

Both states are linked to it, however, I would say Virginia much less so than Maryland from a modern standpoint. Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia are much more alike than Richmond is to Washington...two different worlds.

1. The Washington Redskins play in Maryland.

2. Maryland concerts held in Prince Georges County are called DC concerts

3. If you live in Montgomery County, Prince Georges or Anne Arundel Counties, you get both the DC and the MD version of CBS, NBC, ABC and Fox. If you live in Anne Arundel County both the DC and the Maryland Stations apparently think the other guy is covering your county's towns.

4. I'm willing to bet more people in Prince Georges County and Montgomery County subscribe to the Washington Post rather than the Baltimore Sun.

5. Lines of the DC Metro start and end in Md and Va.

6. Northern Va, Prince Georges, Montgomery and Anne Arundel Counties are full of DC feds.

If it weren't for all the transplants in the area, DC would have more in common with Richmond than Baltimore.

I always felt a Maryland-type vibe in DC. NOVA is common in DC but that's it.
