Okay. I know that Atlanta triumphs the entire state of SC by a long shot, but I don't think it's fair that the other cities get overshadowed and one city should not represent an entire state in this poll.....Soooo, I am wondering what state do you think stacks up better city wise minus Atlanta (just because one city in SC does not dominate the state, I'm asking ya'll don't think about ATL in the mix).....


Georgia
Augusta Metro - 557,000 (186,000 is from South Carolina)
Savannah Metro - 356,000
Columbus Metro - 301,000
Macon Metro - 222,000

South Carolina
Columbia Metro - 777,000
Greenville Metro - 637,000
Charleston Metro - 665,000
Spartanburg Metro - 285,000
Myrtle Beach Metro - 269,000

Yes, Atlanta's metro is larger than the entire state of South Carolina.

South Carolina's metros don't receive much attention because of how large the surrounding states metros are (Georgia, North Carolina, Florida).

Even if you take Atlanta out, Georgia would still be more progressive.

I would add Athens to the Georgia list of cities at 193,000.

To me it's pretty much as wash here, although the SC cities might have a slight advantage. Savannah and Charleston cancel each other out, and Columbia being the state capital is an advantage in itself and therefore beats out Augusta. Myrtle Beach and Greenville/Spartanburg are more attractive to me than Columbus and Macon, but I don't know of anything in SC that competes with Athens.

SC wins by a nose.

Without Myrtle Beach and Charleston, South Carolina wouldn't be very much known at all...

This poll will be flawed because the title doesn't make it clear that Atlanta is being excluded. People don't read the very first post in these 'versus' threads so they'll automatically vote for Georgia due to Atlanta.

I know you have nothing to support this, but even so I'll bite: How so?

Although I think Charleston has a slight edge on Savannah as it's overall more well-rounded, I generally agree with this assessment.

And Hilton Head. Columbia and the Upstate are nothing to sneeze at, but SC's claim to fame is definitely the coast.

SC's coast alone beats out those two, not even including Columbia and the Upstate (Greenville and Spartanburg).

Did you even read the first paragraph about taking Atlanta out the mix. You didn't even mention any other city in GA.
