There are enough differences between NC and GA for them to not be considered twins in those respects, but they definitely have their similarities.

North Carolina is more similar to Virginia IMO, but Georgia would come in second followed by South Carolina and Tennessee.

"Wouldn't consider it southern..." Please, I've had a wonderful Christmas, don't ruin it.

The ties between GA & NC are pretty strong. Everyone in my circles personally and in business like NC, and it's basically held in pretty high regards.

I agree, they're both pretty similar states. Many similarities between the Atlanta metro, Charlotte, and Raleigh/Durham. Athens and Chapel Hill are also extremely similar.

Funny how everyone forgets NC and GA border each other, though!

Outside of the South, yeah - they do tend to forget that we share a border.

There are SO many people from ATL that vacation in and/or own/rent places in Western NC. I would guess the numbers are second only to Floridians.

The business ties between ATL and all of the NC metro's are also very strong, but especially with Charlotte.

Seems like a fast growth state with many interesting metro areas. Wouldn't want to live there.

Sorry! South Carolina is where I draw the line. To each their own.

I consider Montana to be a part of the South. To each their own, right?
