Yeah, even south of Macon has hilly areas if you're away from the coast. Really the only places in GA that are completely flat is probably the I-95 corridor from Brunswick to Savannah, and of course the Ofeekenofee(sp?) Swamp.

Central Texas has hills and also small hills in North Texas. Texas is not a flat state.

It may lack mountains, but there are hills in East Texas.

Alright, soft rolling hills, but not totally flat.

Louisiana is probably one of the flattest states in the country. A large percentage of the state is flat and swampy without even rolling hills. North Louisiana has soft hills with the exception of areas near the Red River, Ouachita and Mississippi Rivers which are flat. Also there are hills in the Florida Parishes northeast of Baton Rouge near the Mississippi border. There are also salt domes near the Gulf Coast, such as Avery Island and Weeks Island, which rise over 100 feet above the surrounding swampland.

And Eastern Nebraska is quite hilly, the western part of the state has tons of Bluffs, and the Central part has the Sandhills.

There are a few hilly areas in Florida, but they aren't much to talk about. There are several states that have miles of FLAT. Flat is okay, but I prefer mountains. Too bad I'm stuck in Florida.

Kansas and Nebraska are the flattest states I've visited. Both states have a couple of areas that are comprised of some very small rises but each state is dominated by pretty level terrain.

I'm always amused when Flatlanders try to call ant mounds in their states, hills. A 50 foot elevation is hardly a hill. :-)

How much have you traveled off the interstate in either state?

Does Nebraska have flat spots? Yes, quite a few of them and one of them happens to be where the interstate runs. Thats where most people get their perception. If you have really traveled Nebraska you will see rolling hills like Iowa's, the Sandhills and the bluffs/pine ridge in western Nebraska. Are they mountains? No, be we aren't some pancake state with a couple ant mounds either. Also if you want to get real technical about it, Omaha has an elevaton of 1060 ft, Kimball on the western edge of the state has an elevation of 4717 feet. So it can't be completely flat. I'll get off my soapbox now, I guess I get tired of the stereotype.

Florida is the flattest state to me, although states like Delaware and Rhode Island I wonder about. I haven't been to Delaware or Rhode Island so I don't have a basis to comment on. Most states are so big that its hard to say they are flat.
