Hmmm, I would cut off Pacific Northwest about 1/4 of the way down in California, with the majority of it just being "West." San Diego and Los Angeles should probably be Southwest.

Florida is not the south anymore, to many yankee retirees. Its more cuban and haitian and retirees from new york to be considered the south anymore, maryland is not the south either. the rest yeah as far as the south goes.

The panhandle and central Florida are still pretty Southern.

Looks good, but if I were to be nit-picky I have a few suggestions: the line between "Northeast" and "South" should roughly fit the 39th parrellel, which would include northern West Virginia, Maryland, and about half of Deleware. Also, Florida ceases to be "Southern" about halfway down, it's more of its own world down there having more in common with the Carribean than the South culturally. Also, I'd push the line between West and Midwest a touch to the east so that Denver fits into the Western category. But those would pretty much be my only alterations!

The Pacific Northwest would extend down to maybe San Simeon, California.

The rest of California is definitely in the West.

Yes, some of southern Utah in the Southwest.

I think the West should include more of Colorado. At least Denver.

I'll take your word for the cut-off between the Midwest and the South, since I've never been to those states that are divided.

Something tells me my Brothers and Sisters from the Deep South would not agree with the southern boundary in the least. The northern most cutoff should be on the Kentucky/Indiana-Ohio line.

Plus, half of Missouri in the South? I don't think folks from Missouri would agree with this designation. I'm pretty sure that most Missourians would place themselves squarely in the Midwest.

Finally, there is absolutely no way that Delware or Maryland are southern.

Southern States:
Alabama (Deep South)
Mississippi (Deep South)
Georgia (Deep South)
South Carolina (Deep South)
Louisiana
Tennessee
Arkansas
North Carolina
Kentucky
Texas
Oklahoma
Virginia (part of it)
Florida (part of it)
West Virginia (part of it)

The rest of your regional designations look pretty good IMO. Overall, good job.

I agree with you but Southern Indiana has pockets of places that are pretty Southern in character. No where in Ohio or Illinios is Southern. Southern Missouri is. Overall I think it is a pretty good map.
