North, i like the seasons here more. Also i like the urban places that have been built over hundreds of years ago. also it has a more diverse group of people.

If the north had the southern prices. This would almost be a no brainer question.

The ignorance and north vs. south crap goes both ways.

Once in Houston I was driving to the store and out of nowhere a parade of horses came down the street causing traffic. I'm yelling "get out the way!" and they were waving back and saying hello On top of that they had Taylor Swift playing

I agree with you 100%, I agree even more with your comments because it seem that the South's mimicking the Northeast Corridor thing with this; when that's done the easygoing South will be done too. I'm a native Southerner but I like to vacation up North because that's where the great cities are; I think most Southerners want/like a rivalry with the North but I'd say that it's split on the malice factor.

Exactly, once more ppl migrate and there is competition for jobs and the cities become fast paced like the cities up north it will be the same thing. I laugh at ppl who think Northerners are rude as if its in there blood..lol..It has to do with the environment and living in fast paced, competitive, overcrowded and stessful area.

The South
-better weather
-the scenery
-low cost of living
-peace of mind
-cities and rural areas (best of both worlds)
-more relaxed, not as fast-paced

I like living in the South and visiting the North, as well as other locations in the South. But I wouldn't mind living in the North (e.g., NYC) for a spell.

My experience has been exactly the opposite.
