I'm including Kentucky, West Virginia, Florida, and Texas here, even though some people would not. Yes, I do recognize that certain parts of these states are predominantly shaped by other cultural influences, but to me, these states as a whole should definitely be included in discussions about the South, or at least the parts of them that are culturally Southern. I'm also going to include Oklahoma under the same logic, even though it is more of a "transitional" state.

Really, out of this list I would have to say South Carolina. Charleston probably gets its due from those outside the region, but I'm not sure word is out on cities like Aiken, Greenville and Columbia, nor is everyone aware what a great coastline SC has away from Myrtle Beach and Hilton Head.

3. Close to MAJOR Northeast cities (Boston, Philly, DC, Baltimore, etc)

4. Close to Southern Cities (Atlanta, Charlotte, Nashville, Raleigh/Durham)

5. Mix of Northern and Southern Culture.

6. Great Great Great Suburbs around DC, Richmond, Hampton Roads, etc

7. COL is not as high as I would expect it to be.

8. The people are honestly great.

9. The Cities/Variety of Cities. (I love Richmond, I love Arlington, I love the Hampton Roads, I love the Appalachian cities)

10. Economically Stable
Virginia isn't underrated; it's easily one of the most highly rated Southern states.

The most underrated as the thread states. Arkansas would get my vote. I love the Ozarks!

Yes, I think it has been rather eclipsed by the DC suburbs. Barring them, it is still a marvelous state.

Agreed! Virginia outside of NoVa doesn't receive much "attention," or at least it doesn't seem that way. I'd have to say that Arkansas and Alabama seem underrated as well.
