So, I made a map of the different regions of the U.S. in Windows paint.

Obviously these are my interpretations of the cultural differences in the United States and yours will surely differ.


Do you agree? If you do not agree, tell me why.

You made too much of Texas the Southwest, It basically should be the Western panhandle. I would say you should have done the same thing to Texas that you did to Florida or just make a color for Texas.

Nobody is going to agree on the regions, no matter how perfect you make them. Good job though!

I agree. The most controversy is where the Upland South meets the great lakes. I like how you made Covington and Louisville KY mostly Great lakes, but sprinkled some Upland South both in and around them Do you really think Terre Haute IN is the great plains? I don't know...

So I have a question is New York New England or mid Atlantic? And how similar/different are the two regions? Thanks!

I think your map suffers most because the Great Lakes is expanded too much as a cultural region. There's really no association with the Great Lakes, for example, in Western PA save for Erie. in Ohio I'd say it's only the top third or so of the state, and in Indiana only NW Indiana, from Gary to maybe the South Bend/Elkhart area.

I'd add a new cultural region, called the midlands, which ranges from Pennsylvania through to central Missouri.

Looks like you had the same issue many of us do - what to make of Florida.
