Okay, so I keep hearing these two states are quite similar and that they're both considered to be "Upper South." However, are there any areas of these two states that could be classified as "Deep South"?

Eastern NC is sometimes considered Deep South and I tend to include it in the region.

The Tidewater region of VA has some historic Deep South characteristics, but it's not within the region.

This is very true. Once you're east of Chatham County, NC looks very different.

People tend to judge NC by its most popular (tourist) areas: OBX, the Triangle, and Wilmington. However, that image is not representative of the whole of eastern NC. Not by a long shot ...

Deep South - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia NO. The only way to have "Deep South characteristics" is to be in the Deep South.

@ amaiunmei. Im talkin about VA, so mind ya manners... you posted a whopping 2mins before me... I was in the process.

Anyway, since you asked, what I know is thats like asking "what areas can be classified as the Southwest?" Plus, Ive been all through Onslow County-Jacksonville and New Bern, Kinston, Wilmington and all that before, so chill. The Deep South may be known to be underdeveloped, rural (cottongrowing) and impoverished but, being rural (cottongrowing), underdeveloped, and impoverished doesn't qualify a place to be classified as the Deep South Deep South: Definition from Answers.com and I wasnt even speakin for NC, but still.
