Everyone calls Door County the Cape Cod of the Midwest, now what would you say is the Cape Cod of the South?

Well there's not place that calls itself "The Cape Cod of the South" (at least none that I know of), but if I had to pick a place that has some of the Cape's qualities, I guess I'd choose Hilton Head or St. Simons Island. There isn't anything else quite like Provincetown, though haha.

The Delmarva peninsula is not in the south, its in the Mid-Atlantic region, which is not part of the south. Virginia just has a little sliver on it that could hardly qualify as south. However the people may consider themselves southern in certain parts of the peninsula

My choices:

St. Simon's Island, Georgia

or

That little stretch of heaven known as the Florida Panhandle, between Destin and the western border of Panama City (Not Panama City itself, mind you).

I said OBX but i'd say Hilton Head if it was on the list.

I've never been to either but I am fairly well-versed in the cape.

The Virginia portion is definitely southern, and the Maryland Eastern Shore also has a lot of southern characteristics. But I agree that the peninsula as a whole is not southern, especially as you go farther up into Delaware.
