Either you are dumb or a troll.

A good third of Texas looks just like Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi.

It's not about having an opinion on it, sir. It's right there in the pictures, and anyone can clearly see that those places could be virtually anywhere from East Texas to the Carolinas. The only real exception would be the Appalachian and Piedmont southeast.

You have yet to answer my earlier question: Do you consider Arkansas, Alabama, Louisiana, Tennessee, and Mississippi "the South?"

I have answered it, i said eastern Tenn, ALabama exxcept for the Mobile area.

you can search old city data forum threads and see Carolinas is preferred for scenery.

the east coast southern areas as I described them seem to have more new growth than ark, miss, lousiana, etc.

Oh good grief, your definition of "the South" is - frankly -ridiculous. And you didn't even know that Texas was a part of the Confederacy! Why am I even wasting my time discussing this with you? (Answer - because I have the time to waste.)

As far as scenery, your opinion is just that - a subjective OPINION. Of course the Carolinas are beautiful in some parts, but SO IS TEXAS. There are beautiful parts of every state.

This isn't a contest about which states you prefer, or which ones have the best amenities, or whatever -the question you and I (and some others) are discussing is whether or not Texas is a part of the south. It is in the Southern US geographically. It was a Confederate state. Civil war battles were fought on Texas soil and Texas had one of the most important ports in the Civil War (Galveston). The people in Texas speak with a pronounced southern accent. There is a huge southern influence when it comes to architecture, cuisine, dialect, and music. Texas shares much commonality with the rest of the south when it comes to history, commerce, agriculture, economy, etc.

You can say "Texas isn't southern" based on your peculiar ideas of just which states "make the cut" (and you don't even include Mississippi and Louisiana in that count!), and your two weeks of visiting the state all you want, but frankly - you're in denial for some weird reason.

There is a lot of strange logic (or a lack thereof) on this thread!
