Holy crap, they call it "coke." That's it, they can't even be 'Honorary Midwestern.'

While it is hard to see it, Louisville is included in this map of Southern/Creole cuisine.

Perhaps those are the "Midwestern with Southern undertone" areas?

I love studying cultural changes and notice them in my travels. Regarding Kentucky...What amazes me is that Louisville and Cincinnati are a relatively short distance on I-71, but the difference between the two cities is striking. Although bordering on Kentucky, it seems like Cincinnati residents go out of their way not to associate themselves with their southern neighbor. Even Northern Kentuckians seem to be ashamed of Kentucky.

I agree with you that Northern Kentucky isn't "truely Southern" in culture with it being so attached to Cincinnati. It's the opposite for Southern Indiana since it's more heavily attached to Louisville people see it as more Southern.



That's the only beef I have with this map it doesn't included the areas of Southern Indiana and Southern Illinois.

Or Southern Ohio in it's southernmost areas southeast of Cincinnati.

I think it's southern. I live in Southern Indiana basically a suburb of Louisville and I think I have kindof a southern accent.

My family is all from NW Kentucky and I even have family in Louisville. I can tell you, even though Indiana is close by, they consider themselves southern and I agree. They all have fairly thick accents, and youll here accents in Louisville, even northern Ky. The problem with northern Ky is that it has been invaded by Ohioans and hoosiers LOL.

Yes, Louisville is one of the souths border cities and is distinctly southern.

I pretty much agree with this map although I feel the northern border of the south could be actually moved a tad bit north of the Ohio river in spots. Also the interior rural areas of south Florida must be included...even though really, all of Florida is the south.
