I've been to several states and have never been culture shocked by anything yet. I find that cultural differences are determined more by ethnicity, urbanity level, and political views

Regional slang, fashion, and accents have been fading to a large degree. I meet people from all over the US as well, and rarely is there anything regionally discernible about their personality.

Not an unpopular opinion. I agree. Not necessarily a bad thing though.

Not so much culturally but there are differences.


I'm outside NYC and my family in Detroit calls soda "pop" … we say "soda" here. There are a few other words that are different depending on where you are in the country … but culturally, ehhh. Some things are different.


Some regions are certainly more religious than others and the 'culture' revolves more around the church.

While some regions are more religious, the younger generation anywhere in the US is not likely to be that religious. With the possible exception of Utah because of LDS.

Cities differ based on age and density. Suburbs differ based on age. It’s when you get outside those two areas do you notice some big differences. Also fast food.

Obviously. But there are regional brands that have a strong identity with certain regions.

Where I am (in the NYC metro), you get a lot of younger people / people without kids living in the city whereas older people / people with kids tend to be in the suburbs.

Eh I didn't really consider the presence of In n Out to be noteworthy when I went to Nevada. Nor do I think White Castle is an important part of New York culture (though I'd hate to see them go).
