Which of the two do you find more nationally known (not judging by just by the major cities, the entire state as a whole)?

How do you judge something as vague as "more nationally known"? You mean which state do you think most Americans know more about?

This is gonna get interesting.

I say Georgia because of Atlanta and maybe Savannah, but NC has plenty of reasons to be just as "well known." A lot of people still associate NC with Andy Griffith, for better or worse. I think more people know ABOUT Georgia, but have a MORE FAVORABLE opinion of NC, at least within the context of the South. Is that possible?

Let the debate begin.

Georgia....Atlanta and Savannah....Most of the major rappers and R&B singers come out of or live in ATL and you hear georgia this and Georgia that (Outkast, TLC, Monica, Ludacris) and the list can go on for dayyyyys.......Tyler Perry's films are usually based in Georgia (black community prob knows it little better than NC).....

I know you didn't say major cities, but when it comes to Atlanta, over half of the states population lives in the Metro area so it's hard not to factor in the city....

Good points with pop culture. That's definitely a factor.
