11 Reasons North Carolina Is Better Than South Carolina

While North Carolina and South Carolina are often viewed as ‘one’ or ‘sister states,’ we’re about as different as night and day. Sure, we have some similarities, but North Carolinians, and our culture, are completely different from our neighbors to the south. While there’s not too much beef or competition between states, there are subtle ways that North Carolina is just plain better…

Before you say “Emory, you’re being biased!” I’ll add a note that while attending an out-of-state University, I came into contact with A LOT of South Carolinians. It was an SEC school, so it was a good mix of southern cultures from multiple states. I’ve learned a thing or two about South Carolinians in my twenty-four years of life. I think it’s safe to say, North Carolina just has so much more to offer! What would you add to the list?
