Most of Virginia is like that and so is Washington DC to a lesser extent. Historically DC and Virginia were considered to be culturally Southern areas (Virginia even led the Confederacy during the Civil War), but in the second half of the 20th Century, became culturally Mid-Atlantic after the successes of the Civil Rights Movement and the economic upturn and rapid industrialization for Virginia during the 50's and 60's.
In other words, Virginia used to be considered a Southern state by the US Government, but is now considered a Mid-Atlantic state. Depending on who you ask in the state, Virginia is either the southernmost Mid-Atlantic state or the northernmost Southern state. I'm more in the former category, although the city where I live (Roanoke) tends to consider itself Southern rather than Mid-Atlantic, but Virginia has culturally shifted and changed so much in the past 50-60 years compared to other Southern states it bears few traditional Southern trappings, especially in the Tidewater coastal cities of Eastern Virginia, as well as the DC suburbs in Northern Virginia. There are exceptions to this, like Lynchburg, which is fully Southern and proud of it in terms of cultural trappings.
