Frankly, that contrast is one of the things I love most about this beautiful state.
One hour out of Atlanta gives you the antebellum charm of Madison, the verdant, bucolic atmosphere of Ball Ground or Flowery Branch, or the quaint, 'Mayberry'-like feel of Senoia, Pine Mountain and Newnan. And the gardens!

I went to high school in Pine Mountain and just got back from a high school reunion there - my husband (from Texas) fell in love with both the terrain and the people!

It's neither a negative or positive imo. I was just stating in response to the forumer that said that Atlanta and the rest of Georgia are indistinguishable.

Texas: Midland-Odessa is most stereotyped part of Texas

Least is RGV. Rio Grande Valley, the Brownsville and McAllen metro areas.

Yes, of course.

Interesting. To me, most of the suburbs that share a border with Atlanta are very much like that part of Atlanta they share a border with. When I lived in Sandy Springs and Roswell, I didn't feel any stark cultural contrast from northern Atlanta/Buckhead. Decatur doesn't feel like a foreign entity compared to Kirkwood/East Atlanta. College Park/East Point is just an extension of SW Atlanta. And so on and so forth.

In the South, city boundaries tend not to be hard cultural/political boundaries as is the case in several Northern cities. The only thing that really tells you where the city ends and the suburb begins in much of the South is a sign.

Yet you'll refuse to reflect upon the characteristics which have defined the people and culture of Atlanta because you won't be able to say that they're not identical to those which have defined the people and culture of Georgia.

Then you would be very wrong. You clearly love to take your personal neverending issues with Georgia to the extreme, but it is dishonest and ridiculous to join Atlanta and all of the rest of Georgia at the hip the way you do from afar. You are clearly beyond clueless as to the nuances of either Atlanta or Georgia.

Atlanta has as much in common with Waycross as New Orleans does with Monroe.
