I didnít see utah done.
Most like stereotype: Provo, Over 80% LDS and typical of what people would think k of.
Least like stereotype: Salt Lake City and Ogden both are not what you would expect if you have never been to either, but probably Salt Lake City because most people would t assume that salt lake has a openly lesbian mayor and over 20 breweries.

For Michigan, two areas come to mind as stereotypical:

* southeast Michigan may be the poster child of midwestern industrial muscle turned Rust Belt with all the ills of economic and social decline. Two caveats: first, it is a stereoype and I’m not sure that the region deserves any standout reputation. I think a lot of how it is views eminates from Detroit and Flint. Second caveat: obviously Ann Arbor is 180 degrees removed from this

* the shorelines along The Great Lakes, most dominately Lake Michigan. I could throw in the UP which seems a bit counter intuitive as it both far flung and sparsely populated. But it does carry the sense of being “rustic”, woodsy.p, a Michigan quality it shares with both Wisconsin and Minnesota

Least stereoypical: Michigan’s urban/industrial belt is the southern part of the LP as mentioned above, the southeast area gets a bad rap on being rust belt where in the southwest, cities like Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo and Battle Creek may be surprisingly well functioning

Despite that a lot of people have said so, there's absolutely nothing comprehensive to found which indicates that the culture of Atlanta is distinguishable from the culture of Georgia.

In Maryland, Garrett County is by far the least like the state stereotype. Annapolis and possibly Kent Island are the most like the state stereotype.

Then you obviously don't know anything about actual life on the ground in Atlanta. You couldn't be more wrong if you tried, there are many Metro Atlantans that want nothing to do with the rest of Georgia. It's unfortunate and it's mostly their loss, but it is a thing here.

meaning it's very obvious you're in GA once you leave Atlanta. I found the contrast bw city/suburb from a cultural standpoint to be more stark then any of the other cities I've lived in.
