The Tri-Cities area (Bristol TN/VA, Johnson City, and Kingsport) probably represents the greatest tie between the two states.

I wasn't saying that it was a substantial tie, but only that it's probably the greatest tie between the two. But that metropolitan area (CSA) does have half a million people.

Charleston and especially Myrtle Beach have a lot of ties with the western part of NC with all the people vacationing from there and the people that go there in the summer and fall Charlotte is the major city for almost the entire Carolinas. In Charleston, Raleigh is just another city for most.

GA and NC don't have many ties. There's no rivalry between those two states except between Atlanta and Charlotte or Raleigh, and the mountains in both states are about the only thing in common.
SC has ties with both bordering states. Guess it helps to be a smaller state in the middle of two large ones. Closer tie to NC....But still strong with GA as well
