Myrtle Beach 465,000 is almost 150,000 less than Augusta’s MSA. I think your proving my point, because you obviously believed Savannah is Georgia’s second largest MSA.

It’s apart of the Greenville CSA. And wasn’t it apart of the MSA a few years back?

It's a similar situation to the Dallas Metroplex. Fort Worth is part of it, but has it's own history, culture and identity. Same with Spartanburg.

There isn't one, and few other Southern states have one, either. Birmingham was founded specifically to accommodate the steel industry. Greenville's industrial history mirrors that of its Fall Line peers ie Augusta, Macon and Columbus in that they were more focused on textile manufacturing.

In my mind, Greenville is better peered with Huntsville and Atlanta as early railroad and steel industrial hubs. Columbus, Macon, Augusta are Fall line peers of Columbia and were known for textile mills and cotton. They’d be peers geographically as well, peidmont vs fall line, transitional cities.

I grew up an hour from Augusta and lived in Savannah for a year. And Georgia’s second largest MSA is still smaller than Columbia, Greenville, and Charleston. So point proven. Thanks for the numbers. Hence, SC minus ATL offering more per poll results.

I don't know how this is a serious competition. 3 major metros vs. Savannah? Augusta isn't serious competition to any of the others. I'm sure Savannah is great and my friends tell me such, but so is Charleston. You have the state capital and USC in Columbia and a pretty city at Greenville. Definitely SC.

True, but you're handicapping a state to create a "what if" scenario. NC, SC, TN and FL has better mid size cities than GA and offer more as well. It just shows how dominant Atlanta is to the state. Georgia goes where Atlanta goes.

SC wins. But metro Atlanta offers more than most states, including SC, so its no surprise GA suffers without it

Even without Atlanta metro still Georgia for me because Savannah > Charleston, the North GA Mountains > whatever mountains SC has, and Augusta, Macon, and Athens > Columbia, Greenville, etc.
