About This Quiz

The southern region of the United States is different from the rest of the country. These warmer states are known for their very own lifestyle. Things might move a little slower in the South, but the South is full of great food, history and roots that run deeper than in most places. 

As you go through this quiz, we are going to ask you questions that we think will give away which southern jewel you call home. From the hustle and bustle of Atlanta to the laid-back lifestyle of New Orleans, each southern city has a set of traits that we are sure have rubbed off on you simply because you live there. Whether you were raised in that city or you're a new resident, we're certain that your city has given you a certain vibe we'll be able to pick up on. 

Answer with the response that you think represents you best, and we'll hear you speaking in your accent by the time you're done. Will we know which city you are lucky enough to call home, or will we need to book a trip and learn more about your town? Either way, we're sure you're southern enough to offer us some sweet tea!
