Previously southern Cities like Atlanta, Charlotte, Raleigh, Richmond and Charleston seem to be full of Yankee Transplants. The southern hospitality is going way and many neighborhoods have more people with the Jersey charm than people who grew up in the south.

What relatively large cities and metro areas in the south still have mostly southerners and the resulting southern culture and hospitality?

Memphis & Little Rock

Sorry to hear that Charleston has been overrun by transplants. I'm going to visit there some day.

I'm guessing that Jackson MS and Birmingham AL may be good choices. Perhaps Baton Rouge too.

Baltimore. It doesn't have the huge influx of transplants that other cities are dealing with.

Baltimore is not southern and there are a lot of New York and New Jersey transplants in the Bmore area. Hell they took over Towson and Northern Baltimore. Owings Mills is transplanted as well.

Towson University and Stevenson College are the reason for that. I don't think it has to much to do with the place being attractive to them.

Whether or not Maryland is overrun with people from the Northeast is irrelevant because it isn't southern in the first place. Read the OP and please for the love of god lets not have the "is maryland southern" debate.

That topic has been beat to death. Furthermore, I don't consider Maryland southern either. However, I'm finding the northeast less attractive these days. They're smelling their own **** up there these days. And there's too much brown nosing from other regions.
