I agree with Williamsburg. What a wonderful area when I last visited.

I'm not sure how large Natchez MS is but it does have lots of antebellum homes.

Memphis has become very crime ridden, most people are moving way out to get away from the crime.

Savannah is a wonderful place with the squares. I have not been there in many years, but fell instantally in love with it on my first visit.
There are still many nice, safe places left in Memphis. Most of East Memphis is safe. There are some really nice neighborhoods there. East Memphis has survived white flight. A lot of people left, but most of the old-money still lives there, and it's pretty stable.

Well I suppose one thing that would have made it more southern would have been actual Southerners. Atlanta is full of transplants and a new generation of Georgians that do not want to be associated with the Old South. It would appear that once a good number of Northerners move in along with their ultra liberal ideas, you can watch that city/state decline in a hurry. They mess up their own states with their liberal nonsense so they move down to our great states and try to screw them up as well. They won't rest until every state in the Union is falling apart like Michigan or New York.

I don't agree with that at all. I would have to say that a lot of these transplants have made Atlanta the best in the state of GA and one of the South's better cities. Nobody wants to be associated with the "Old" anything, do you think people in the Plains would want to live through random shoot-out every noon? Why would anyone want to stay stuck in the past? I have the ideal Southern place to live that's basically untouched, Tangier Island, VA.

I thing most people associate the Old South with manners and etiquette over say growing cotton and owning slaves.

Um, most of the Atlanta suburbs are actually very conservative and have a lot of southerners.

Well of course, I lived in Kennesaw for years but the city of Atlanta is the city in question.

Dunno about Lex, my ex-inlaws live there, it is pretty midwestern, as a matter of fact, so is Louisville.

No it isn't. Lexington is very much NOT midwestern, Louisville has some midwestern elements but overall is Southern.

Huh? NY is not falling apart, like Michigan is, anyway.
