In Atlanta, people from AL mostly trash Montgomery & Mobile.
North Florida likes to bash South Florida and vice versa.

As for people from Atlanta bashing cities in Alabama, I've never heard anyone from here say much of anything about Mobile. Really, the only city in Alabama I hear Atlantans talk about is Birmingham.. and it isn't necessarily all bad either.

Pretty sure Montgomery takes the cake for red-headed step child in Alabama. If not Montgomery, then pretty much any one of the black belt towns with the exception of Auburn.

From a South Florida perspective, I'd say that it would be pretty much anywhere in the panhandle. Jax gets grief too as a "pretend large city". I'd presume that from a panhandle perspective, most might say Miami.

Keeping it local from a local South Florida perspective, I'd say Hialeah gets the most grief with Opa-locka coming in a strong second.

I've heard Jacksonville referred to as the largest city in South Georgia. I also remember a Miami-based sports writer poo-pooing the city when it hosted the Super Bowl 10 years ago.

I cannot say for certain that it is the "punching bag" of the state but it does seem like most Floridians south of Orlando don't have high regard for Jacksonville.

The tourist magazine of Jax calls it "the largest city in South Georgia." Couldn't believe they wrote that in an "official" document when I saw it.

In Texas, seems like Port Arthur and Odessa takes alot of crap.

In Indiana, it's Gary.

Gary is where liberalism is celebrated as an actual lifestyle rather than a philosophy. It's a virtual liberal Mecca.

I'd venture to guess about 90% of all Hoosiers would be ok if Chicago annexed Gary and took it off of Indiana's hands. Seems the people in Gary identify more with Chicago than they do Indiana, anyways, so it shouldn't be an issue for them.

I know this is old but no; in SC, it would be Florence. Most of the flack Columbia gets is as the state capital and home of USC (from the Clemson fans).
