This US map shows the major cities of the United States, including capitals, tourist destinations, and centers of commerce. The 35 most populous cities in the United States are marked on this US map. As shown on the map, major cities of the United States are concentrated in coastal region, the Northeast, and the Southwest. These coastal regions are more densely populated, often because they are point of entries for immigrants to the United States.
The top cities on the list of major US cities include New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, and Philadelphia in the top five. These world cities are important financial capitals, tourist destinations, and population centers in the United States. With Wall Street, the UN Headquarters, and neighborhoods with influences from practically every cultural group, it's no surprise that New York, one of the world's best known cities, tops the list.
These thriving cities are home to diverse populations, with vibrant cultures that have converged to create something uniquely American. Both New York City and Los Angeles are entertainment capitals of the world, with Broadway and the headquarters of many television stations in New York, and Hollywood film studios in Los Angeles, setting the stage for the entire world in terms of entertainment.
