About This Quiz

The name's Buff -- History Buff. Or, at least, yours will be once you find out which historical region of the United States is truly perfect for you. If where you live now isn't really working for you, if you feel like your heart is meant to be somewhere else or if you're just looking for a change of scenery, this quiz is for you. Not only will we take a deep dive into your style, house and weather preferences, but we'll also find out what's really important to you in life. There's bound to be a historical region that perfectly aligns with all your goals.

Some regions, like New England, consist of a few states that have long been part of this country and are deeply rooted in tradition. Others, like out west, are physically larger and have a different, often more free-flowing view of the world. Given that the areas are so vast, you will be able to find exactly where you belong. Maybe it's the south with all its fried food and barbecue. Or maybe you prefer the fresh seafood of the Mid-Atlantic. Answer our questions covering everything from food to clothes to love and we'll reveal which historic American region fits you the best!
