So in that sense, to me anyway, Maryland seems more like a Northeastern state like Massachusetts then does Virginia.
The irony here is that the seafood industry in Maryland is based in the culturally southern parts of the state (Talbot, Dorchester, Kent, Calvert, St. Mary's, etc.).

Seafood figures prominently in Tidewater Virginia culture. Hampton High School's mascot is the "Crabbers."

There are places in the northern parts of the Chesapeake Bay area including Baltimore as well as the Delaware Bay areas of Delaware and New Jersey that are similar to Maryland and the Tidewater Region of Virginia. So if you want to consider every county bordering the Chesapeake Bay and the Delaware Bay culturally southern, then you can.

I would add West Virginia to the list of debated states because some people call West Virginia Northeastern, some people call West Virginia Midwestern, some people call West Virginia Southeastern. If I had to choose a region for West Virginia, it would be the Northeast because of the location and the fact that it is located in the Frost Belt.

Most people call WV southern. That is pretty much it. Very few people consider it to be anything else.

"I wish I was in the northeast" is more like it.

Not a very few people, some people call WV a northern state.

I think so...

Considering the south isnt that unique to the rest of the country when it comes to being "culturally, demographically, linguistically and politically"
