Yeah, that's also how I think of the regions.

I agree with this, but the Northern New England states have a culture that slightly varies from the more urban East Coast. The more populous coastal regions trend more professional/Democratic, but the rural areas tend to be more individualistic & rugged, as well as more libertarian leaning. Even parts of Vermont, which is an overall liberal state.

Vermont, Pennsylvania, Washington D.C, and I'm going to add West Virginia doesn't touch the Atlantic Ocean.
