Culture[edit] Main article: Culture of the Southern United States The predominant culture of the Southeast has its origins with the settlement of the region by British colonists and African slaves in the 17th century, as well as large groups of English, Scots and Ulster-Scots, Germans, French, and Acadians
in succeeding centuries. Since the late 20th century the New South
New South
has emerged as the fastest growing area of the United States
United States
economically. Multiculturalism has become mainstream in the Southeastern states. African Americans remain a dominant demographic at around a 30% of the total population of the Southeast. The New South
New South
is built upon the metropolitan areas along the interstate 85 corridor. Cities include Birmingham, Atlanta, Greenville, Spartanburg, Charlotte, Greensboro, Winston-Salem and Raleigh-Durham. The economic power of this megalopolis will rival that of the Northeastern megalopolis in the coming decades. Climate[edit] Most of the southeastern part of the United States
United States
is dominated by the humid subtropical climate. As one nears the southern portions of Florida, the climate gradually becomes tropical as winters are freeze free and all months have a mean temperature above 18 C (the defined coldest monthly mean temperature of tropical climates). Seasonally, summers are generally hot and humid throughout the entire region. The Bermuda High
Bermuda High
pumps hot and moist air mass from the tropical Atlantic Ocean
Atlantic Ocean
and eastern Gulf of Mexico
Gulf of Mexico
westward toward the southeast United States, creating the typical sultry tropical summers. Daytime highs are often in the upper 80's to lower 90's F.[3][4] Rainfall is increasingly summer concentrated as one moves southward, reaching a sharp summer monsoon like pattern over Florida. Sunshine is abundant across the southeastern United States
United States
in summer, as the rainfall comes in quick, but intense tropical downpours. Winters are cool in the northern areas like Tennessee, Virginia, Maryland, and western North Carolina, with average highs in the 45 °F (7 °C) range in January. Farther south, winters become more mild across interior eastern North and South Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama, with average January highs in the 53 °F (12 °C) range. As one nears the Gulf of Mexico
Gulf of Mexico
coastal plain and coastal areas of Georgia and South Carolina, winters become warm, with daytime highs near or over 60 °F (16 °C), until far enough south in central Florida
where daytime highs are above 70 °F (21 °C). Winters tend to be very dry and sunny across Florida
in winter, with a gradual increase in winter rainfall with increasing latitude. Economy[edit]

The Southeast has changed dramatically in the last two generations. Since 1980, there has been a boom in its service economy, manufacturing base, high technology industries, and the financial sector. Examples of this include the surge in tourism in Florida
and along the Gulf Coast; numerous new automobile production plants such as Mercedes-Benz
in Tuscaloosa, Alabama; Hyundai
in Montgomery, Alabama; Toyota Motors
Toyota Motors
in Blue Springs, Mississippi; Kia in West Point, Georgia; the BMW
production plant in Greer, South Carolina; Volkswagen
in Chattanooga, Tennessee; the GM manufacturing plant in Spring Hill, Tennessee; the Volkswagen
manufacturing plant in Pulaski, Virginia;and the Nissan
North American headquarters in Franklin, Tennessee; the two largest research parks in the country: Research Triangle Park in the Triangle area of North Carolina
North Carolina
(the world's largest) and the Cummings Research Park in Huntsville, Alabama
(the world's fourth largest); and the corporate headquarters of Verso Paper in Memphis, as well as FedEx, which is one of the world's largest shipping companies. Fortune 500 companies having headquarters in the region include 20 in Virginia, 16 in Florida, 15 in North Carolina, and 14 in Georgia. This economic expansion has enabled parts of the South to have of some of the lowest unemployment rates in the United States.[5] In Alabama, there is a large-scale manufacturing project owned by the German steel megacorporation ThyssenKrupp, which operates a massive, state-of-the-art facility in Mobile. Research and development[edit] Research Triangle
Research Triangle
Park, in the Raleigh-Durham urban area of North Carolina, has emerged as a major hub of technology, governmental, and biotechnological research and development, as has the Virginia BioTechnology Research Park in Richmond. The Cummings Research Park in the Huntsville, Alabama
area is the second largest research complex in the nation. Located in Huntsville is the Redstone Arsenal, United States Army Missile Command, the U.S. Space & Rocket Center, NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center
Marshall Space Flight Center
and many other key government, military, and aerospace agencies. The National High Magnetic Field Laboratory
National High Magnetic Field Laboratory
in Tallahassee, Florida, is the largest laboratory in the world devoted to the study of magnetism.[citation needed] The University of South Carolina
South Carolina
is currently constructing a research campus in downtown Columbia, and the university is the nation's only National Science Foundation-funded Industry/University Cooperative Research Center for Fuel Cells.[6] Education[edit]

Combined Statistical Areas[edit] Beyond Megalopolis by Virginia
Tech's Metropolitan Institute, an attempt to update Jean Gottmann's work with current trends, defines two "megapolitan areas" contained within the Southeast, out of a total of ten such areas in the United States:

"Piedmont" extending from North Carolina
North Carolina
to Alabama "Peninsula" covering South Florida
and Central Florida

Two others tie some areas on the margins of the Southeast to urban centers in other regions:

"Gulf Coast" extending as far east as the western tip of Florida "Northeast" including much of Maryland
and eastern Virginia

These are the combined statistical areas of the Southeastern region which exceed 1 million in population according to the United States Census Bureau's 2016 estimates. Note that the metropolitan areas of Tampa and Richmond are not included in any CSAs, so they are included in the table without constituent areas.[9]
