Might as well be considered seperate from Southern Virginia. One day it'll happen, I'm sure. There's a totally different attitude up here in the north. I won't be as arrogant to say we're better though. NoVAns are always amused by visitors to the state who are in awe of the DC sights, and in my case, of Potomac Mills Mall. NoVAns tend to take a lot of our amazing resources for granted, unfortunately. We refuse to call our part of the state "southern, or respond without putting the "northern" in front of Virginia.

NoVAn: *NORTHERN* Virginia. Not the south. No.

A region that should be an independent state. Home to the worst drivers anywhere. Mostly rich areas.

Where all the rich kids live. Especially Fairfax, and eastern Loudoun.
"Man you live in northern virginia? Dude, your parents must be loaded. You have the #2 and #3 wealthiest counties in the country, ya know!"
The best place that you could ever live! alexandria is the shit! We are in no way hicks cuz northern virginia is cosmopolitan and ecpsecially alexandria. we are so close to D.C. and yet so close to greenery and nature. Old Town is the wealthy area of Alexandria. Suck on that!
