I would say it is one of the Northernmost of the Southern states and also the Southernmost of the Mid Atlantic states

geographically and traditionally (culture-wise) it's southeast...not as "southern" as it once was of course...do you feel like you're in the south when spending time in the triangle...I don't

The U.S. Census Bureau considers NC to be in the South Atlantic.

By no stretch of the imagination is NC "Mid-Atlantic" which defines cities like Philadelphia, Baltimore, etc.

Actually "NC" cannot be defined in one specific term. The rural areas are very Southern, almost "Mayberry RFD"-like in many places, and the urban areas are like large urban centers in some areas. The suburbs are like suburbs anywhere, with a mix of people from all over. Most places are "traditionally Southern with aspects from the North and Midwest".

I'm not sure why you are trying to characterize 9 million people in the state as all one thing, as there is a WIDE diversity of people here. You cannot possibly say "NC is like _____" and have it be true in every case.
