I only consider the Deep South to be La, Ms, Al, and Ga. New Orleans would be #1 or #2.

Default Deep South Cities,

I have spent many days driving the Deep South and touring the different Cities while looking for a good place to invest in Rental Properties. I have also done extensive research on this subject. I have toured Alabama, Mississippi, Parts of Georgia, The Florida Pan Handle etc.
Right now as far as the different Metro Areas (Outside of Atlanta and New Orleans) of the deep South go I would nominate maybe Jacksonville, FL, Huntsville, Al, Columbus, Ga, Pensacola, Fl and maybe the area around Warner Robins, Ga. None of the Deep south areas are exactly what I would call Boom Towns. They just kind of Chug Along at a laid back deep south pace.

South Carolina is also the Deep South.

It is rare that Houston is considered East Texas to most Texans. East Texas is mostly Tyler, Longview, Marshall, Paris, Texarkana, Lufkin, Nacogodoches, Silsbee, etc. Houston is usually placed in Southeast Texas, Gulfcoast, or a region on it's own. The Golden Triangle which is basically Beaumont, Port Arthur, and Orange is culturally different from Tyler and Lufkin areas well. As a matter of fact, this was a conversation on this forum.

Do you consider Houston a part of East Texas?

East Texas is pretty much like the Panhandle of Florida.

Per urban dictionary:

1.) The Deep South is a cultural and geographic subregion of the American South, differentiated from the "Old South" as being the post colonial expansion of Southern States in the antebellum period.

The core states of the deep south are:

Alabama
Georgia
Louisiana
Mississippi


The Carolinas and the rest are the Old South. I have never heard any native southerner use the expression "Deep South" to describe SC. When I hear it use I think of Al and MS and LA specifically, GA was a colony.
