Most Distinct Region of America

Our nation is one of unmatched diversity. Whether it be the West, housing a seemingly different country, California, or the South with its unmistakeable culture and infamous history, our nation is, again, one of unmatched diversity. I am aware that this board is one of numerous members from various locations, and being this the case, a fantastic discussion with adverse positions will undoubtedly follow. What is, in your opinion, our country's most distinct region?

I'd say the southern Appalachians.

I think this particular distinction goes to the South. Historically, it is the only region to aggressively hold on to slavery, and the only region to secede from the union. Politically, the South, has very distinct voting habits(a product of their very distinct ideology). Culturally the South has given birth to country music, blues, and rock n roll. In addition, the South has also given us a plethora of writers: Faulkner, Wright, Whealty, Tennessee Williams, and Grisham to name a few. A place like no other...

Not to mention grits, fatback, and pork rinds.

I've always wondered why there haven't been more southern enterprisers to open southern-style resturants in northern areas. Grits and sweet tea? Those are absolutely delicious. Perhaps there are no southern enterprisers.

Kentucky Fried Chicken seems to be doing fairly well.

I was thinking about something more. A restaurant, with waitresses, that offers everything KFC does but with a higher quality. You've all probably SEEN the food that this restaurant would serve, just not in the soul food vein; i'm talking grits with enough cheese, butter, salt and pepper to produce a culinary orgasm; i'm talking deep-fried porkchops brimming with a myriad delicious seasons; i'm talking a huge jar filled with ice and sweet tea. I'd hope that all of you, at some time or another, get a chance to enjoy genuine southern food-Like no other.

Egads.................I used to hang out in Brighton Beach, before it became a Russian outpost. Seems like a century ago. Egg drop soup, chow mein, rice, ice cream, tea and a fortune cookie for 45 cents (95 cents after 5 pm. Very Happy ) I would go to the Brighton Beach Baths. There was a live show every day in the band shell, and we would mambo in our bathing suits.

Then there was the boardwalk...............above and under! Laughing

I think that the west is a very distinctive area, around the four corners area. Its landforms are nothing like anywhere on the planet.

We have just such a place in Somerville Massachusetts... in walking distance to my house in Cambridge. I think there is a similar place in Boston proper.

I really don't understand the CONSTANT desire for people to correct. The especially disagreeable cases are those involving incorrect corrections-Tennessee Williams is from Columbus, Mississippi.
