“Belts” of the USA
In addition to the division into states and regions by the US Census Bureau, in the United States of America there are many other, unofficial, but nonetheless very popular and common, ways of regionally dividing the country. So, for example, in the South of the United States, the following areas are often distinguished:
- Old South – states where the first British colonies in the region were founded: Virginia, Delaware, Maryland, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina;
- New South – South Atlantic states;
- “States of the Confederation” – South Carolina, Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Texas, Virginia, Arkansas, Tennessee and North Carolina;
- Deep South – Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia and South Carolina;
- Southern Gulf states – Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas and Alabamalocated on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico;
- Upper South – Kentucky, Virginia, West Virginia, Tennessee, and North Carolina.
“Belts” are often called regions of the country, united by the similarity of one or another characteristic. There are quite a few “belts” in the USA, the most famous are:
- “Bible Belt”
- “Black Belt “
- “Mormon Corridor” (“Jelly Belt”)
- “Rusty Belt”
- “Corn Belt”
