About This Quiz

The American South is home to around 150 million people and many cities, each with its unique personality. Instead of thinking of the South as one monolithic entity, it should be regarded as a diverse land with something for everyone. Let's start with geography and climate. From the sandy beaches of the Atlantic coast to the rocky Texas hill country, southern geography is as unique as the people who live there. So whether you are a beach person, an avid outdoors-man, or just a fan of staying in the city, you have a lot to pick from. 

The different cities also have their own character and pride, reflecting the disposition of those who live there. Houston is scrappy and entrepreneurial, with people from all over the world calling it home. Asheville is a mountain town that is home to artists, hippies and artisans. And of course, the food is great everywhere, though each region has its own specialties. In Texas, brisket is king while the Carolinas are hog heaven. Austin has world-class Mexican food while Dallas is home to some great Korean and Indian offerings. So think what you like to eat, how you like to act, and what you like to do. We will quiz you on your disposition and tell you what city you should pack up and move to.
