Southern United States

The Southern United States is a geographical and cultural region of the United States of America, often known as Dixie, the Southern States, the American South, the Southland, or simply the South. It is situated between the Atlantic Ocean and the Western United States, with the Midwest and Northeastern United States to its north and the Gulf of Mexico and Mexico to its south. It comprises Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia, according to the U.S. federal government's classification.

The South has a reputation for being hot and muggy with lengthy summers and brief, moderate winters while being a diversified meteorological region with many climatic zones, including temperate, subtropical, tropical, and dry. The majority of the South is under the humid subtropical climatic zone, with the exception of parts at higher elevations and those close to the western, southern, and some northern edges.

The South saw a profound transformation in the late 20th century. Its service economy, manufacturing base, high-tech industry, and financial sector all experienced growth. Texas in particular has had rapid population expansion due to the dominance of the petroleum and tourism sectors, which include attractions like the Alamo Mission in San Antonio. Throughout the final decades of the 20th century, tourism in Florida and along the Gulf Coast likewise steadily increased.

The culture of the South has historically and continues to be more socially conservative than that of the rest of the nation. Because of the dominance of farming in the economy, social stratification was still based on land ownership. The dominant community institution in rural areas is frequently the churches, to which residents build deep attachments.

Southerners are frequently perceived as being more laid back and living slower paced lives. Another common misconception about Southerners is their resistance to change. Additionally, they are said to be courteous and well mannered, especially while hosting guests; this trait is known as "southern hospitality."

The Southern Region United States consists of nine states: Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, District Of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia.
