I'd say Houston is "the real South" but Atlanta is probably a little more like Dallas than Houston.

Baltimore and Philadelphia aren't in different regions, I'm sorry. Culturally and linguistically they are very very similar. The Mason-Dixon line is outdated and the census has it wrong on regions there.

Texas is the real South I'm sorry. Culturally, linguistically, and demographically and historically it is a Southern state.

Except Baltimore and Philly aren't in different regions

I'd also argue for Cincinnati (Midwest) and Louisville (South).

I'd also argue for Cleveland and Buffalo as well as Cleveland and Pittsburgh.

Two cities in different regions that feel very similar: Asheville NC and Portland OR. Both are in rainy, wet, mountainous areas, both have a river running through them, both are mainly white, and of course both are proud of their weirdness and alternative bona fides, and have become national hipster magnets.

Biggest difference of course is population and that Portland has a more robust non-tourist economy. Still, I think of these cities as near mirror images of each other.

It may be southeastern(ish) but the southeast US or the "real south" is GA, AL, MS, FL, SC, TN, NC.

Cleveland and Buffalo are pretty similar, Cleveland and Pittsburgh really aren't. Pittsburgh is far more similar to Cincinnati than Cleveland.

VA, AR, and KY are "the real South" too, although I can see the exception for NoVA. A nice chunk of Texas would also count.
