I know Dover well, boy, it is a small world, isnt it? I loved every minute I spent in Louisville, still miss it! Its just the coolest city, very cultured vibe, and great food!
I loved going to the Speed, and all the wonderful shops, I could go on forever!

Thats ironic. To me I'm from Virginia, and Florida feels hardly Southern at all compared to Virginia. Except of course for Northern Florida- that area is still pretty Southern.

I have to agree with MissyMom. Lousiville and Lexington are nothing at all like St. Louis. They are Southern !

I was never trying to compare Kentucky and Florida, if you read back on this thread, I stated that in an earlier post.

No, but I visited. I am from the South, so I can tell what feels Southern to me.

Atlanta does not feel Southern. Neither does Charlotte.

Nashville is mildly Southern, but not as Southern as Richmond. I just know my Southern, lol

Richmond is not the South. There are a dozen threads about how it is the gateway to the South when traveling down 95 from NY, DC and Boston.

In many respects, Richmond's architecture, layout, location on a river, state capitol domes and highway design honestly remind me of Hartford, Conn.

Its gritty areas resemble Cleveland and Pittsburgh. Richmond is only 5 1/2 hours from New York, so it's location is well North of the heart of Dixie, which to me is Atlanta.

thank you, I have been to Richmond several times myself, it never struck me as being particularly southern at all. This whole thing really boils down to whether one has really been in the south at all, which means the small towns. The metropolii cannot be construed as southern, because of all the outside influence. One must go to the small towns, where successive generations live without large amounts of migration from the north or other parts, to get the true flavor of the south.

RICHMOND IS THE SOUTH!

No it does not look like that city at all. You keep saying the stupid same thing.

Richmond is 7 hours from NYC. 400 miles.

Richmond is VERY Southern. It is more SOuthern than Atlanta or Charlotte.

I have been many places all over the South. Richmond is much more like the OLD SOUTH.
