Located in the American southeast, Virginia is the birthplace of the United States Of America. Not to be confused with Tenessee, Virginia is the birthplace of Country music and Southern culture and most of the modern South's populations have ancestors that are from Virginia. The state's first song,which was written by a former slave, was Carry Me Back To Ol' Virginny but is not used anymore due to it's offensive lyrics against African Americans, A second song has yet to be written. The state's flag was adopted during the Civil war to show resistance against the Union North, which Virginians saw as tyrants. The old or ol' dominion is the state's nickname.
Northern Virginians are exactly that and do not identify with Central and Southern Virginia but tend to have more in common with D.C. and Maryland. Northern Virginans for the most part do not have native accents due to most of them being originally from the north and mid-west, some elderly northern virginians will have an accent. Most Central/Eastern Virginans have the famous tidewater accent, a refined faster spoken southern accent and use words such as Hoose for House. Most Southern and South Western Virginians have the Thickest of the Accents which out of state people may have a hard time understanding. Northern Virginia is regionally different being considered the southern most section of the mid-atlantic and will have snow while Central and southern virginia will have rain as well as typical southern plants and palm trees. The state's motto is Virginia is for lovers but Virginia has approved a gay marriage ban, which Northern Virginia strongly was against. Northern Virginia will most likely become it's own state or something of the sort in the future. If you want to experiance American/Confederate history, Virginia is a great place to do it.
Guy 1 - I want to experiance the American history, hmm Maybe Westmoreland, Virginia?

Guy 2 - Yes that's a great place, George Washington and Robert E Lee were both born there!

The first state is mostly filled with good ol' southern folk, with the exception, of some tree huggers in northern virginia, and is known for it rich history. you wont find a giant amount of rednecks, but there is still a good sized amount of confederate flag waving hicks.
Virginia is the first state, and part of dixie.

Virginia, where the weather is made up and seasons don't matter.
February 2010: Virginia gets about 2 feet of snow in a matter of a day and a half. The next day, kids were outside playing in the snow in t-shirts because it was 70+ degrees Fahrenheit outside.

A southern state (with many northern people), that has a little something for everyone. It's a very business-friendly state, and it has a very efficient government. It's incredibly diverse, with people from every background you can imagine. Each city has its own unique flavor, some are southern and poor...some are northern and wealthy. It depends on where you go.
Virginia has the best of everything. Southern charm + efficient government + northern wealth = a GREAT state.

Lets start with N. Virgina. In short a very boring place, trust me I live there. Full of posers who think they have "hoods" or "ghettos" when in fact the cities and counties are some of the wealthiest and safest in the state, though crime is present everywhere 9 out of the 10 N.Virginia thug wannabes have never seen a house get sprayed by a mack they only say they do because they watched Menace 2 Society. MS13 and 18th Street did not orginate here, they originated in South Central L.A. But who would want that only a N.Virginian of course. Full of preppies and poser christian/emo kids. In abundance of wannabe thugs who have houses bigger than shoppings malls and a 3.7 gpa. That is a brief but not complete breakdown of N. Virginia, the list of cons goes on and on. S. Virginia is where it's at. Better in everyway, even though there are a'lot of rednecks they tend to be friendly, and most of the time the people are nice. Though there are rough neigborhoods, but they're not bad compared to other American cities except for Richmond. VA beach is great place to visit (but it doesnt out do the beaches in California) Southern Hospitality is present here and you'll never forget it. All in all Virgina is a good place to visit or live if you want a taste of the South, but stay out of N. Virginia its a place devoid of anything fun, and the audacity the residents have to think they're better than everyone is completely mind boggling.
N.Virginian: I suck at life.

S.Virginian: Don't be so hard on yourself you could always come here....and not suck.
