Uh, no. Where is TN's coast, tobacco legacy, ACC teams, major research parks, light rail, etc.?

No way. They're very opposite.

I won't say they're very opposite as they do have some similarities, but it's definitely not the case that NC shares more similarities with TN than all of the other states being compared here. I'd say that's true of Maryland, but not VA, SC, and GA.

I'm speaking more of the topography of at least the Eastern half of TN similar to some of the Piedmont region of NC. Obviously the coast line is a different story.

None of the above. South Carolina/Virginia is a better answer.

I would not put South Carolina together with Georgia, two completely different states. Georgia is more similar to Florida than South Carolina. And I definitely wouldn't put North Carolina with Maryland/Virginia. It makes the most sense to me to group North Carolina with South Carolina. And I've spent a lot of time in most of the areas mentioned above.

I'm a native of SC, previously lived in NC, and now live in GA and I disagree with pretty much all of this. GA more similar to FL than SC? That's outrageous.

Topographically, the answer is easily VA.

Yeah but topography wise, NC and VA have more in common then NC and Tennessee in more parts throughout each state.
