I would also include Jeff Davis, Appling, Bacon, and Wayne Counties out of the Savannah DMA. The rest of the Savannah DMA is either more East Central GA, or Coastal in culture, which has a different vibe than interior South, GA. Crisp and Ben Hill Counties are the counties out of the group that would be transitional in nature.
I agree with this. It's what I was trying to describe in my earlier post but it never dawned on me that the TV DMA map would illustrate it so well.

Looks like the maps (Area Code and DMA) along with the personal opinion of a few show Dooly County as a true divider between South and Middle GA. Very Interesting.

It may could be argued that Northern Dooly County (Unadilla) is the last city of Middle GA and Southern Dooly County (Vienna) is the first city in South GA, traveling on I-75

I would agree that Unadilla is the end of Middle GA, but would say that Vienna is transitional, and Cordele is the gateway to South GA, geographically. However, there is still a very solid connection to Middle GA in Cordele (Crisp County), and Fitzgerald (Ben Hill County) due to the fact that the Macon Telegraph is the most widely read newspaper in the area, and Macon TV stations are available, and are significantly viewed in those counties. Plus, there are quite a few people who commute daily to jobs at RAFB from those areas!!

Very fair assessment. The end, transition, etc. is definitely around those areas.

If they ever set up a DMZ in Georgia, it would run along the Fall Line.

After that, the entire rest of the land below I-16 gets very south Georgia in a hurry....hazelhurst, Georgetown, Bainbridge, Camden, Blakely, Alma, Doerun, ludiwici, soperton, doesn't matter. It's entirely different. Not worse mind you, just different.

If you go by economics, it gets steadily poorer the further south you go outside of a few exceptions. A look through Wikipedia and any county you wish will show you the percentage of those living below the poverty line. There are counties where that number hits 34-37%. Take a peek. It's telling. Beautiful countryside abounds throughout the state but, the feeling is different.

Interesting.

Savannah vs. Charleston, SC
