Northeastern WI has a strong German presence, and I'm half German, so yeah. It's the one place in the country where polka is still a living entity (Polka Time has been broadcast in Green Bay for decades every Sunday), bratwurst and other sausages are grilled (on a hard roll with mustard and sauerkraut after soaking in beer) more commonly than burgers, people are strongly German/Polish Catholic, there's a bar on every corner, etc.

I think it's where you're raised that has the biggest impact.

I have ancestors that were Dutch and lived in NYC in the 1600s and 1700s. About half of my family tree is Scottish / Scots Irish and German immigrants who lived near Philadephia before moving South, yet I've never considered myself to be from the East Coast. No one in my family even knew where our ancestors came from before I researched it.

I have 1st cousins who live in Philadelphia who are 100% East Coast people in every way. I have another 1st cousin whose dad was Polish and from Boston, she is totally Country Southern.
