Southern United States refers to the area bounded by the Gulf of Mexico to the south, the Atlantic Ocean to the east, and the Ohio River to the north.  Florida, plus the "Deep South" states of Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee, are included in the South.  Adjacent states up to the Maxon-Dixon line, including Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, West Virginia, and Kentucky are often considered part of the South, as are nearby states to the west of the Mississippi River, including Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas, and Oklahoma.  Southern real estate ranges from retirement communities and Gulf Coast vacation homes to urban and suburban homes, farmland, and golf resorts.

Southern winters are relatively mild while springs arrive gradually with the budding of camellias, magnolias, and azaleas.  Summers are hot and humid, giving way to pleasant autumn days.

Atlanta is the commercial capital of the Southeast; Nashville is a magnet for country music fans; New Orleans is known for its jazz and Memphis for its blues music; Orlando is the site of entertainment venues like Disney World; Myrtle Beach is a popular oceanfront destination and tourists flock to the Florida Gulf Coast during the winter months.  To the west, in Texas, Dallas is a commercial center and Houston is an important petroleum industry base.
