This thread is not even a fair comparison. While the areas are connected, they can't be compared to BosWash. However, I will say if people really looked at the development of the Carolinas, many would be surprised about what they would find. But, that sticks to Ncs theme"To be rather than to seem."

But, to answer the question, to me I'd take Carolina. But the vast majority of C-D would take BosWash.

This is the first I've heard of any sort of Triple C region, and I've lived in North Carolina my entire life.

There is the occasionally (barely) mentioned Atlanta-Greenville-Charlotte-Greensboro-Raleigh emergent megalopolis, but the key word is emergent. I think it was some dude's thesis @ Emory.

Columbia, Charleston didn't really factor into that as well. And driving I-77, there's a whole lotta nothing between Rock Hill and Columbia. Given how pretty the piney sandhills of that stretch of SC are, I don't consider that to be a terrible thing at all.

Kinda like how Bermuda bridges the gap between Metro NYC and Metro London?

I have driven between the two cities countless times. You are talking nonsense. Charleston barely has any suburbs to begin with, and the two cities are a long ways apart, in two totally separate regions.

They basically share nothing but the same state.

Charleston is larger than you probably think. It has a fairly long string of suburbs, relative to the city's size, up along I-26, and it has suburbs on both sides of the peninsula.

Is the Triple-C Carolinas Megalopolis a cousin of the Triple-A Triangle from another thread?

Why would a "Carolinas Megaregion" start with a NC city and move south through South Carolina when there are clearly more people and bigger cities if it moved through North Carolina instead? Even better, wouldn't a "Carolinas megaregion be better with both states fully represented?
