I realize right up front that this might best go in IMHO, but I’m going to start it here in GQ. If a moderator feels like moving it they are welcome to.
I was wondering if there is a standard accepted way of dividing the United States into regions, i.e. is there a book or similar source that has general acceptance among those who should know?
I’d also like to know, and here we are getting in IMHO, or rather IYHO, how would you divide the United States geographically and/or culturally. I’m thinking West coast, southwest, midwest, south, East coast. There are probably division within these such as Pacific Northwest, New England, Midlands and south etc.
So what I’m asking is both for opinion and “fact”.
