I heard some people talking today about what is really considered the south. So to you where can you live to be Southern?

I think anything Arkansas and lower south. Maybe Tennessee and Kentucky, S&N Carolina, Alabama and Georgia! That is it I guess.

That's a good question. I really don't know where to draw the line. Sounds like you are pretty close. Maybe Missouri.

Well, that's kind of hard to say. For starters, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia are definitely south. From my experience with Arkansas, it has a lot more in common with Oklahoma than the southern states, so I wouldn't include it. Parts of Tennessee would be included, though the metro areas of Memphis and Nashville are excluded. Parts of South Carolina, maybe, but definitely not North Carolina or Virginia.

I forgot about Mississippi! Oops! But I am from south Arkansas which I do consider the south! It all depends on the person though. I never really been around to much and only lived in Arkansas, Texas and Louisiana. Texas is more west than south.

I question Arkansas sometimes too as the south, but just because I dont realy like Arkansas. I have seen many many maps that I can agree with as the south. It stretches from Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee, North Carolina and everything underneath it. Texas, Florida, and Oklahoma are always debabable because they are a little outside of what is known as the traditional south.

Those of us in Louisiana know the state is a little more diverse than merely being "Deep South." So I would propose making two changes: (1) Carve out a new region for Cajun Country, (3) Carve out a new region for the NO Metro area;
