Except that Louisvillians speak with southern accents, and grits and sweet tea are ubiquitous fixtures on local menus. I would consider Louisville a southern city with some midwestern attributes.

Louisville could be a Midwestern city like Chicago and Cleveland because Louisville borders Indiana and Kentucky borders Illinois, Indiana and Ohio, all of them usually considered Midwestern states. Kentucky has some Midwestern traits too. So this means that Louisville and Kentucky are both Midwestern and Southeastern regions, just like Cleveland and Ohio are both Northeastern and Midwestern. I consider the Midwest to be a cultural region.

No. Colorado Springs is western. It celebrates its mountains. SLC, ditto, plus there's the huge LDS population that you don't see in the midwest. Boise is also a mountain city, with a sizable LDS population.
