Do you count all of New York State as part of the Mid-Atlantic, or just the Southeastern part?

Why not include the whole state. I think it would be a little silly to suggest the rest of the state belongs to the New England Area.

I would count all the states mentioned initially. Just for the purposes of this thread I am not splitting hairs on locations within states. I mean...NOVA and southwestern VA are NOTHING alike...SWVA is barely "mid atlantic" with exception to the climate but I am counting it for the threads sakes.

I heart Havre-de-Grace MD with a big old hearty heart. Because it has the maritime feel with topography as a bonus.

Lewes DE is a close runner up because it is just a few miles from the wonderful Henlopen beach.

Both towns are top tier for cute houses, walkability and charming commercial areas.

Love that area! I lived in Abingdon, MD for awhile.

No place on earth is more romantic than Annapolis, MD on a rainy autumn afternoon...the ambience, the intimate feel...the likelihood of running into lovely men in uniform...

I wouldn't call it New England. I'm not sure what I'd call it. Inland Northeast, maybe. It seems kind of weird to call something Mid-Atlantic if it's not that close to the Atlantic.

Inland Northeast, if that's a thing. I mean, they're Great Lakes, but not mid-west, so take that for whatever it's worth.
