I agree. Some of North Carolina is beautiful naturally, but the man made areas? BLECH.

I never realized North Carolina was supposed to be so popular. It does have the research triangle, but most people don't give one hoot about science. I've lived on the east coast, in the south, in the northwest and in the southwest. Never have I heard someone sing North Carolina's praises all that loudly. On that same token, no one disparages it, either.

I'd say California is the most overrated. I love it, but it's not all sunshine and beaches. You can't show up and expect to wear t-shirts and shorts in every part of the state.

Nowadays more than ever it seems to be more popular...at least in the case of trying to refute religion

No, I thought it was tied between California and Texas. The folks from there (that I've come across) are so proud of being from CALIFORNIA or TEXAS. Been there, done that and I don't see why they feel this way. But could be they didn't get out much.

Agreed. From what I've seen some parts of the city proper in places like Chapel Hill and Asheville are gorgeous, but then I can post some aerial satellite imagery of Apex, Cary, Lake Norman, or a host of other suburban areas that will make the skin of any ecologically-conscious person crawl. Calling those areas autocentric is an understatement.
