The Cincinnati area where Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana meet is an interesting cultural transition.

Covington and Newport feel a lot more like Cincinnati than anyplace in KY or pretty much the entire south.

Neither AR or MS have a city anywhere as big or urban as Memphis. Do the MS suburbs feel like suburbs of a med/big city or are they identical to suburbs outside Jackson?

EDIT: NVM Savannah isn't coastal, though its still pretty close. It's metro area extends to the coast.
Uh ... Savannah is indeed COASTAL. It's surrounded on 3 sides by water. Leaving the city north, east or south requires crossing bridges. Many of the city's eastern and southern neighborhoods consist of pricey waterfront real estate with private boat docks on deep-water access. Downtown Savannah sits on a bluff 15 miles from the open Atlantic Ocean. The Port of Savannah is the 3rd busiest and fastest growing container port in the entire country. The Savannah region is known as THE COASTAL EMPIRE.

Chicago borders Indiana and bears little resemblance to anything in Indiana. For that matter it bears little resemblance to anything else in its own state. Illinois without Chicago is just another Indiana.

I agree. Although Cincinnati's location is Midwestern, both it and its NKY metro suburbs share cultural elements from the South, Appalachia and the Northeast. In fact, often with humor or smugness, Cincinnati has been described as its own city-state or fiefdom within Ohio.

Without an Indianapolis.

Pittsburgh is only about 30 miles from Ohio but bears little resemblance to the state visibly and, though there are some cultural similarities, culturally.

St. Louis does not feel like Illinois at all and Kansas City, MO does not feel like Kansas. Both are distinct Missouri cities despite both being on the state line.

Las Vegas, NV: close to Utah but almost the polar opposite. Also, to a lesser extent: California and Arizona (vs Las Vegas)
