Baltimore might've played a bigger role before but today DC is playing a bigger role in developing what's seen as Mid-Atlantic/South Mid-Atlantic or whatever else you want to call it, especially with most of the population and economic growth for the region happening in the DC area..
Actually I partially agree with you about other cities not being seen differently because they're transient. However, some of those cities have come under fire for it, particularly NYC. Also note that none of the cities you've mention is having their place in a certain region questioned. So as far a CULTURE, I give it to Baltimore.

Exactly

The south can divide multiple ways, but one thing that stick out is The Texas triangle and the south Atlantic states, because of population growth. With exception of TN most of the central south states aren't growing much faster than a Midwestern states,

The south Atlantic can be further split the piedmont region and The Florida peninsula with high growth.


The southern piedmont Raleigh to Atlanta forms a corridor of cities, similar to the BosWosh corridor except less developed and populated. But still Raleigh to Atlanta is one most populated and developed regions of the country

Out side the piedmont region there two ways these states are connected

The colonial coast and being the southern of the 13 colonies.

Charleston SC

Wilmington might not have the as large stock of historic building as Charleston and Savanah but for historical reasons it make sense to group them.

Also the southern Appalachian, they do share this partly with AL and TN, but other overall The Appalachia is viewed as Eastern. Even in AL and TN it's the northeast eastern/eastern part of there state.

Asheville NC siblings are like Dalton GA, Rome, GA, Chattanooga TN, and Knoxville TN. Tho the GA cities are smaller.

Asheville.

Rome GA

Another interesting fact tying GA and NC mountain regions that were home to the first and second Gold Rushs in the country. Before the Cali and western expansion.

Georgia_Gold_Rush

These states have East Coastal states characteristics as well as southern states characteristics.

Basically if you stop comparing NC with Mississippi and look at relation between the Carolinas and Georgia. It would make more sense. NC is not mid Atlantic is overtly South Atlantic. It's a southern east coast state like GA.

- Historic colonial coast
- Progressive Piedmont region
- part of South Appalachia.

South-Atlantic is basically the Southern half of the East Coast from VA to FL. Just like the the Northeast represent the upper half the east coast.

I was watching the Weather Channel today. The meteorologist was talking about the big snow storm advancing on the Great Smokies. He said "North Carolina and the rest of the Mid-Atlantic are right in the path of this storm."

I think it depends which states it is grouped with. If they were referring to North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia they probably would have called it the South Atlantic. If they refer to North Carolina, West Virginia, and Virginia, they probably say Mid-Atlantic.

Which is a extremely weird thing to say, meteorologist are not immune to making off comments. He probably was thinking geography wise and not it's cultural region.

Maybe, but I suspect it was because he was speaking conversationally (rather than reading a report). For whatever reasons, South Atlantic just doesn't seem to be a phrase in common use. It's a good phrase, very descriptive, but it isn't one I hear all that often.

Hahaha, that's if Baltimore have a Waffle House, Bojangles, Cracker Barrel, & Piggly Wiggly then it's a southern city. I seen the TV show "The Wire" before and the slang usage on that show seem similar to the northeast cities in my opinion.
