Why do so many people on CD try to pigeonhole entire states? Makes no sense.

And certainly impossible when it comes to one the size of Texas.

This was a debate a while ago. I think most of Texas is the south. Amarillo is the plains and El Paso is the southwest.

East TX is definitely the south
Panhandle and North TX are Great Plains
Central and South TX is in a transitional zone from South to Southwest and shares elements of both
West TX is Southwest.

Yes it’s very much the South.

"Texas all its on uniqueness" was the best option I could choose. Texas is both part of the South and Southwest, so I could not pick both. Texas is in no way part of New England or the Great Lakes, so I couldn't say the state is a combo of all that is America.

Most of Texas is not the south although several of the population centers have some southern elements. I see stronger southwestern influences. The place is big enough to be five states and no one would think most of those “states” were southern. It is almost a region but there isn’t enough similarity among the far-flung parts. It is odd to think of Texarkana, El Paso, Corpus Christi, Austin, Lubbock, Houston, San Antonio, Amarillo, Galveston, Fort Worth, and Marfa in the same state — or region for that matter.
