No clue. Atlanta's like in the center of Georgia I think but I still have no clue what state is closest and in which direction.

If I'm not mistaken, Tennessee is slightly closer than Alabama which is slightly closer than either Carolina.

Atlanta is in the Northwest corner of Atlanta not in the center.

Second the closest state is Alabama which would take 64 miles to get to from the center of Atlanta.
