The northern part of Michigan's mitten (so not the U.P.) and coastal New England. Lighthouses, quaint towns, similar weather, water dominant landscape.

I could see that. Leelanau, Grand Traverse, Antrim, and Charlevoix Counties are some of my favorite places in America.

Galveston looks like it could be in Louisiana.

Austin looks like a CA city, especially in the hills.

The Panhandle of Texas has towns much like Kansas and other Plains states.

The Panhandle of Florida belongs in Alabama.

Northern Arizona belongs in Utah.

The high deserts (Barstow, etc...) of CA belong in NV.

The Sacramento Delta area looks like something seen in Southern Louisiana with the marshlands, definitely not a CA feel.

Cape Cod looks like the outer banks of NC.

Upstate NY looks like upstate MN.

South Texas looks like New Mexico.

West Texas looks like Arizona.

Flordia is probably the most obvious one because it's so far south, but yet its the most Northern friendly state with a large swath of people from the Northeast, Midwest and the Caribbean. Not to mention the tourist that visit Orlando. Florida is a perfect example of how southerners identify more with culture than solely on geography.

I do think that the PNW is pretty similar to the northeast, but from an architectural and city layout point of view I do think they are pretty different, like you wouldn't be able to just plop a PNW city into the NE. I'm not too familiar to the NE cities but here are some of the historic centers of some PNW cities.

Seattle

Olympia
Port Townsend

When I think of the NE I think of something more like this.

Boston
Portsmouth
Plymouth

NE cities are built around cathedrals, similar to Europe, in NW we don't have that many, and the few that we have are not centrally located and look a bit different.

Seattle
Tacoma
Portland
Spokane
Eugene

Boston
New York
Philadelphia
Baltimore
Providence

Parts of Southwest Louisiana look like Iowa. There's a reason Iowa farmers came down to SW Louisiana. They switched from corn to rice, but the landscape is very similar, Gulf Coastal Plains versus Great Plains and soils are different but it looks very similar.

There's even a town called Iowa, LA. It is where all the Iowans settled when they came down to SW Louisiana.

Texas, east of I35 could be the deep south.

There are two Midwests in my mind, the Plains and the Lakes/Rust Belt.

The Plains are the Dakotas, Nebraska, Kansas, most of Iowa, parts of Minnesota, Missouri, and Oklahoma.

The Lakes/Rust Belt is Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, and parts of Ohio, Minnesota, and a tiny part of Iowa.

When people argue about Oklahoma being Midwestern or Southern, I would agree that it has very little in common with the Lakes/Rust Belt area, but a lot in common with the Plains.

This is kind of what I refer to in splitting the Plains and Lakes
