"Southern" is such a gray area that no one can really agree as to what makes a place so.

Now old-fashioned and unchanged and relatively large? Jacksonville, Florida popped into my mind. Fair or unfair, I've mentioned before that Jax is a city that seems like it should be more than it is but isn't for whatever reason. The location is great (It's Florida, that should itself be a selling point), the DT area sits on the St. Johns River, they have an NFL franchise, and yet nothing "excited" me when I went. The city just seemed so, stagnant and content with being so.

Yes....there are some.

Good candidates:
Augusta, GA
Columbus, GA
Macon, GA
Savannah, GA (Savannah has always had some of its own flavor but it's quite Southern)
Tallahassee, FL
Birmingham, AL
Mobile, AL (has its share of problems)
New Orleans (has its own fairly separate feel though)
Asheville, NC (it's somewhat different because of the influx of people coming in, but still is ultimately Southern IMO)
Roanoke, VA
Winston-Salem, NC
Columbia, SC
Greenville, SC
Huntsville, AL
Little Rock, AR
Chattanooga, TN
Knoxville, TN

Baton Rouge

Mobile is pretty southern and old fashion, but wouldn’t say it’s unchanging, quite opposite really. The city has/is working hard to change itself
Same goes for Birmingham, the city gives me Reborn South vibes like Atlanta does
