My response was as clear as can be. I said nothing about "other 2nd tier Ga cities," because the statement I was responding to wasn't about other 2nd tier Ga cities; it was about Columbus and Macon. Hence, my response concerned....you guessed it....Columbus and Macon. If you couldn't see that, then frankly that's not my problem.

That just flew over your head.

Aside from that, in Columbus & Macon's defense, yes, it does have regional recognition. It has similar recognition as places such as Athens or Valdosta.
Before anyone in Macon or Columbus comes back with something in defense, I will say that that isn't necessarily a bad thing. Every one of these cities are growing and have a positive perception among people. There are good things going on in Georgia!

Finally, I will say that, yes, there are also people I know who haven't a clue about Macon, Columbus, or Valdosta outside of Georgia, but those people are the minority (in the region aka AL,SC,NC,FL & TN, not necessarily nationwide). ...You know what I say to those people who don't know about the places I listed above? I tell them about those cities! Where they're at, whats there, the positive things that are happening in them, and remind them that its not all Atlanta in Georgia!

Sure, that's why you took the time to respond to my statement not once, but twice.

It does, but I'd say barely (and by "regional," I take that to mean the Southeast). That's primarily due to size and neither one having anything extraordinary associated with it. I know Columbus has Ft. Benning, but if you're not associated with the military or military personnel in some way, or just well-versed in geography, you wouldn't know that.

I don't think Valdosta has much regional recognition, but of course Athens does, due to the presence of UGA.

People regionally associate Columbus with Fort Benning, Macon with Robins AFB, Athens obviously for UGA, and Valdosta for Wild Adventures. There are other things to associate with these cities and this is just one example but they are recognized regionally.

Obviously a lot of people here have heard of these things (but I have no clue what Wild Adventures is, and I was born and raised in the neighboring state of SC and never heard of it), but if you asked someone in, say, Virginia or Louisiana about the military installations in particular, I think it may be a toss-up as to whether they've heard of them or not. But there's really no way to validate this, so it just remains opinion.

There are some people it's just a waste of time trying to thin and prove because their brains are like a empty glass jar.....
