We are moving from Michigan to Burlington and when people ask us where that is, we always answer that it's on the flip side of Cincy.

Northern Kentucky is nothing like the rest of Kentucky. You are not in Kentucky, culturally, until you cross into Grant County. NKY is essentially Ohio South. This opinion is based upon me living in Florence, Louisville and now Lexington, and having travelled extensively throughout the State for work and pleasure. Nothing wrong at all with Northern Kentucky, but it is way more connected to Ohio than the Commonwealth.

Been reading about the Invisable line dividing the north / south Kentucky . Interesting read , why ?
Because Michigan tend to do the same thing .

Us up here in the far north on Lake Superior , consider all those south of the Mackinaw Bridge flat landers or trolls . Many people up here want the U.P to be it's own state , which I find rediculas but they want it never the less. Why ?
Because our culture is totaly differant , we have a accent , which the flat landers don't have , we are a very slow paced people , most towns up here roll up the streets at 10 pm . No crime , no fancy life styles , no hot shot jobs , no millionaires , we drive fords / chevies . We support the Green Bay Packers over the Detroit Lions . Everything up here is differant than the Lower Penninsula , which makes us totaly differant than them . I actualy think you'll find this in ever state . I lived in 3 others besides here and I think that's true.

I live in Tennessee and sometimes make trips up north following I-75. I consider myself to be leaving the south officially when I pass over the Ohio river but culturally the south begins to thin out north of Lexington. When I get far enough north that sweet tea is not automatically assumed to be the type of tea a customer would order or even where sweet tea could be unavailable you must question the areas southerners. It is the sweet tea line and you pass it when you pass Lexington. I do however recognize the US census definition of the south and the historical definition both of which place the border as the Ohio river. Funny though you can drive just 5 hours north of northern Kentucky and your looking at thick upper midwestern accents, hockey fanatics and two feet of snow. I understand why people question its southerners.
