The US:
The south = Warmer, friendlier.
The north = Prettier, more historic.
(Please tell me if it isn't right)

I prefer the North, I find people there to be more friendly personally, and I love colder weather. I also like the history and urban set-up of many of the cities there.

Here is the Dixie version:

North Pole: Santa Claus
South Pole: Where Santa Claus is planning to relocate because he has been taxed out of existence and too expensive to make toys for children anymore
Northern US: Bronx, East St. Louis, Detroit
Southern US: Gone With the Wind, spanish moss and moonlight and magnolias and the white gold of cotton fields stretching from the Carolinas to Texas.

NOTE: Advance apologies to my many northern friends for what might seem I am denigrating their region. Hope y'all understand the reason I posted what I did is because I have a real problem with arrogant. clueless, screwballs... My own personal experience with being up north and most of the northerners I have ever met has been nothing but pleasant and full of fond memories of the travel! *smiles*

it isn't right. The north is more historic, but I wouldn't necessarily call it prettier.

I'd prefer to live in the Southwest and visit the Midwest. I guess I just have to do things opposite for a while.

The Northern US would like to politely decline possession East St. Louis.
