In Georgia, for anyone who lives in Atlanta, it's the rest of Georgia (exception being Savannah). Those in rural Georgia detest Atlanta.

Pretty sure most everyone likes Savannah.

If it does, it aint by much......Rural parts of the state dominate Pennsylvania politics over both Pittsburgh and Philadelphia put together and that sooooo wrong....I've never seen such a dynamic in any other state that exist in PA. Where the 2 major cities (Philadelphia, Pittsburgh) are the sole "Makers" of PA, yet it's the "Takers" that have all the say-so in Harrisburg. The Takers hate that any Tax-dollars get funneled back into the Makers of the state, take the Transportation-Crisis in PA for instance.

In Massachusetts there doesn't seem to be one area that everyone hates or mocks. Occasionally you'll here about people in Berkshires complain about Boston getting all the "stuff," but in general we like to make fun of other states: Maine, New York, California, every state south of the Mason-Dixon, etc...

Really? I was going to say Worcester or Lawrence.

For NH it would have to be Nashua or Manchester, but we would rather pick on our neighbors to the south

A funny joke someone from Iowa once told me. If you take the 10 southernmost counties in Iowa that border Missouri and and gave them to Missouri, you would raise both states average IQ by 10 points.
I can vouch that D/FW is not hated by the majority of Texans. Dallas may take some heat from time to time for its materialistic, plastic nature & pathetic football team that thinks they are God's gift to professional sports, but that's about it.

I guess you're right. Brockton and Lawrence get it a lot. Don't hear much about Worcester, probably because the city is slowly improving. Brockton and Lawrence...not so much.

Unless you have a poll to back that up, I don't think you can say it isn't hated by most Texans. It was really looked down on by most of the people I knew in Austin and Houston. Some people in Houston refer to Dallas as Oklahoma's largest city (not meant as a complement). Then there's whole $30,000 millionaire thing, which certainly isn't unique to Dallas, but in the rest of the state pretty much a euphemism for Metroplex residents. I'm not saying Dallas is the worst city to live in Texas. I would much rather live there than most of the smaller towns/cities in Texas. But there is no other city/region that I have heard badmouthed by Texans as much as the Metroplex. When I talk to friends from the Metroplex, they are much more likely to talk bad about another part of the Metroplex (people from Dallas saying Fort Worth is boring, people from the rest of DFW insulting Dallas) than to put down another part of the state.

LOL, that's pretty much it.

For my native SC, it's probably the Pee Dee area which is roughly the I-95 corridor north of I-26 and surrounding areas.

Ah yes, the Florence-Dillon area west of Myrtle Beach. You could probably also throw in Orangeburg for good measure.

Actually, anything between Myrtle Beach, Columbia and Lumberton (NC) on the border is something similar to a black hole in S.C.
