I moved from NJ to MD two years ago. My FH’s family is from the suburbs north of Baltimore. I always figured MD was very similar to NJ. I’ve encountered a few things with wedding planning, and elsewhere, that make it seem like MD is more like a southern state than I thought. I know a lot of Marylanders debate this, but what do you think? Is MD a southern or northern state, and why?

I’m not really sure what you are asking? What makes it a northern or southern state? I’m always considered it more north than south

I think more of a Southern State because I get told that I have a southern accent even tho I cant tell. This always happens when Fiance and I go on vacations and people ask where wer are from.

I mean culturally. People in Mass. consider themselves to be “northerners” and the state to be a northern state, whereas people from Alabama consider themselves to be “southerners.” Maryland doesn’t seem to neatly fit anywhere.

It’s called “mid atlantic” apparently. I grew up in Maryland (outside DC) and always felt more northern than southern but when I moved to Savannah, GA for college I easily adapted.
I think Maryland goes both ways

I’m a Southern girl, and I would definitely not classify Maryland as a “southern state.” 🙂

Technically it’s considered a southern state because it falls below the Mason Dixon line…however, I would not consider it very southern. At least not the parts by Bmore or DC…the rest of the state has a more “southern” feel to it.
