What I mean by this question, is does your state have regions that are thought to be different from the other, either by the attitude of the people there or by distinctive geography? Examples of different areas in states

West and East River South Dakota
Eastern and Western Montana
North and South Idaho

Where I live in Wyoming you don't seem to hear much difference in the different regions.

Texas due to size and located between the South, the Midwest, the West and Mexico has many regions that are very different. When someone calls Tx definately a southern city, I would love to take them to El Paso or West Tx to see wht they think. Oklahoma also is different from East vs West. West is where the land rush was used to settle the more plains type land there. In eastern Ok its greener and full of hills. SE oklahoma has a surplus of water where western Ok was dust bowl. Pa seemed very different Pitt vs Philly when I lived there. So I think it might be very common. but might be wrong..

Heck yes, TN has 3 regions - that's even reflected by the 3 stars on the state flag.

Crowley's Ridge defines the border of the Missouri Bootheel against the rest of Missouri. Night and Day difference.

Almost every big city is regarded by people outside the metropolitan areas as an alien place, and vice versa. The non-urban part is often called anything from "Upstate" to "BFE".

Both Washington and Oregon are divided in half by the crest of the Cascade Mountains. One side of the mountains is wet while the other side is dry.

In Ohio we have Northeast Ohio vs Cincinnati, with everything else being irrelevant to the people of there. Especially Columbus which is nothing but exurban, sprawl wasteland
