Charlotte is definitely moving in that direction. NC is becoming a bipolar state influence largely from Raleigh-Durham anchoring the East-Central and Charlotte anchoring West-Central. The Triad benefiting from their growth.

The diversity of influence in NC seems a lot like Texas, Florida, and California for it's developing cities.

North Carolina's cities must be developing a lot of their own individual character to separate them from the others. That's a very good thing, if states like Illinois had that, Chicago wouldn't be the only major city in the state. Same can be said about Georgia.

Its mostly Charlotte and Raleigh leading the way as far as diversity and economic growth. But the state is experiencing rapid growth.

Easily Atlanta. I don't think anyone else really cares though.

Texas does it's own thing, it's practically it's own region. Miami probably doesn't care, it's more like the capital of Latin America. (Don't quote me on that- just my own theory)

If the south had a capital it would by no doubt be atlanta.
reason one: It has more going on for it than any souther city when it comes to inovation ad transpotation.
two: it is the most happening place in the south right now thats why it's is going down though too many people moving in
three: I heard this said by many southeners when most people refer to city life like nyc in the south or they say city I herd this on tiny and toya two southeners when shewas talking two her mom she why do you have to come to the city acting like that she was refering to atl. She act like New orleans was a small town shocked me. i think atl is now the capital and king of the south.

I think Atlanta is the de facto city of the south. It's the capital of the south, but Texas doesn't care. Most of Florida(especially Miami) doesn't care. So ATL is the capital of the south!
