Do you consider the Mid-Atlantic as a sub-region of the Northeast, or do you consider the Mid-Atlantic as a region of it's own? Just curious.

I personally classify the Mid-Atlantic as a subregion of the Northeast.

I've always considered it a region of it's own...not the NE, but not the South either.

I live in the Mid-Atlantic. Maryland, DE, and DC are not the south, they are Mid-Atlantic. I sometimes consider it a subregion of the NE and sometimes a region of it's own. It depends

No Virginia on here? Growing up I thought that Maryland was Northern but then I learned the history, talked to some people from MD on it and some said NEast, some said Southern in geography, and some said neither (Mid-Atlantic along withe VA), so I would say the Mid-Atlantic is pieces of both the North and South. Delaware is Northeastern all the way and Mid-Atlantic. Looking at that map Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, and some parts or North Carolina are in the middle of the Southeast Atlantic states and the Northeast Atlantic states. In my opinion the Mid-Atlantic is a straight up blend of North and South, do y'all know what I'm saying.

I get what you're saying and i agree. However Delaware is definantly not Fully Northeastern, its got some very southern characteristics and many people say they live in the south from there. The Delmarva Peninsula is really confusing on what they are, north or south. Maryland is definanlty a mix of N and S although looking at a map, it definantly imo doesn't look southern. Virginia is mostly southern with the Northern Part being very northern. To me, the Mid Atlantic is NOVA, DC, MD, DE, eastern WV, and Parts of southern PA and Jersey. But that's just me, The Map given at the top is completely different

I consider the Mid-Atlantic its own region because it has a very different character than the Northeast, which I consider as two "subregions" -- NewYork/NewJersey and New England. The Mid-Atlantic region, which defintely includes Virginia (at least the coastal half) along with MD, DE, DC and even the northeastern NC coast (IMO), has a slightly southern flavor but with much of the culture and affluence that you find in the Northeast. It also has a strong maritime history, traces of which are still apparent today in port cities like Baltimore and Norfolk.

I couldn't have said it any better, you and I share the same exact views (you're a better speller than I though).
