Looks more or less close to reality. I'm sure people will nudge the line here and there but generally about right.

Looks like you follow the fall line.
I suppose a small part of Southeastern VA could be included as being "Deep South," culturally/topographically if not strictly geographically.

Definitely not the DC area.

Depends what your definition of "southern in influence" is, and how it's different than other regions.

That's pretty much exactly how I see it. On the north and west, the I-70/I-44 line provides a rough demarcation of the South-to-Midwest transition.

The best map is an amalgamation of a map where sweet tea is served, kudzu grows, and y’all is said. Then you will find the truest map of the South available.

The Tidewater should include all of Eastern and Northern Virginia as well as Eastern Maryland. Baltimore could also be included. Baltimore is more of a border city between Tidewater Mid-Atlantic and the Pennsylvania midlands.

In my opinion, the Upper South should only include the Appalachian regions of the south while Eastern Virginia and Maryland should be called Tidewater or Chesapeake.


My map is included in the link below. It also includes areas outside of the South and Mid-Atlantic regions but is not completely finished. The counties of Fairfax, Prince William, Arlington, Alexandria city, the District of Columbia, and Montgomery could be included in their own region you wish to separate the DC area from the rest of the Chesapeake region. The Appalachian region should also include parts of Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.

I think this is very accurate.

God forbid.

Many of you are so desperate to distance yourself from any connection to the South it's laughable. Like it or not, D.C. is of the South, and it's literally across the river.

The Census Bureau still designates the DMV as part of the South for a reason.
