I don't think of cities when I hear the word south; I think of a state (Alabama). However, Atlanta is the one city I relate the most to the south.

Atlanta definitely is the first city that comes to mind with New Orleans second. Some people consider Dallas and Houston as more Western than Southern. Miami really isn't considered "Southern." The other cities listed are undoubtedly southern but not recognized as prominently as Atlanta.

I think of Forrest Gump and Sweet Home Alabama when I think of the "South". Meaning Birmingham & Mobile easily are southern in my books. When I think of any Texas cities- I always have this vision of a desert landscape with cowboys and Native Americans and Mexicans and some dudes fighting for the Alamo in that landscape.

When I think of the south I think of like some huge area with nothing but farms, trees, and some dirt roads with like an old beatup truck driving down it. That is probably the biggest generalization and stereotype ever, but thats seriously what I think about when I hear "the south". All I know is, I hope I never get lost in some backwoods area of West Virginia.

I think of Baltimore. Nothing says Dixie like a bunch of rowhouses, tight streets, and density.

DC is also synonymous the south: with its 2nd highest subway ridership in the nation, density, and rowhouses.
