Mid Atlantic is not easily identified...NC cities are mostly quintessentially southern IMO. NC may be included in with the mid atlantic states on some maps, but it's culturally southern.

Can you better define what you mean? If you want a "Mid-Atlantic" city then you should probably look into the actual Mid-Atlantic region (Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia, etc). Not sure what your motive is here??

Well, by definition, the MidAtlantic cities combine northern & southern characteristics, becoming more southern as you progress south. The North Carolina cities are more southern but not the same as the deep South.

I've had this discussion with natives in real life. The ones who have spent considerable time in the MidAtlantic say MidAtlantic. Those who do not have much experience in the MidAtlantic say it's the South.

I guess the best thing to tell you is make up your own mind.

RBC Bank is no longer.....I've actually never heard of any city referred to as that.

Does that stand for Raleigh, Bunn, Clayton?

Most large southern cities are not the same as the Deep South.

I have never heard anyone in NC (outside of city-data) claim that we're part of the Mid Atlantic subregion. That's what it is anyone - a subregion. The four regions of the U.S. are Northeast, South, Midwest, and West.

I'm a babyboomer. In geography class we were taught that the east coast regions were New England, MidAtlantic & South. I know a good number of NC native babyboomers who were taught the same. They were taught, as was I, that NC is both MidAtlantic & the South. Northeast & Southeast were the invention of Amtrak.
