The United States, which is a federation of 50 states and a federal district Washington D.C., is divided into four geographic regions: Northeastern, Midwestern, Southern, and Western.

The East Coast of the US, also known as the Atlantic Coast, has 14 states with coastlines on the Atlantic Ocean. New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida are some of the states on the East Coast. Interestingly, the 13 original colonies of the Great Britain in North America were all located along the East Coast.

Some of these states also fall in Southern US. Popularly known as American South, the states in these regions have several cultural influences. Tennessee is the birthplace of jazz and blues music, and some of the best American writers have come from the South. The states in the Southern US had earned much reputation as the major hub for tobacco, sugar and cotton farming.

The Western US is the largest region of the country as it spans more than half the area of the contiguous US. Home to the Rocky Mountains, Sierra Nevada, Mojave Desert and the Great Plains, it is the most geographically diverse region in America. It was inhabited after the great Lewis and Clark expedition in early 19th century. California, New Mexico and Arizona have strong Mexican and Spanish cultural influences.

The Midwestern United States (or simply the Midwest) comprises seven states: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin. Known as the “Windy City”, Chicago is the largest city in the region. Indianapolis, Columbus, Detroit and Milwaukee are other major cities. Known for its French heritage, Sault Ste. Marie in Michigan was the first European settlement in the region.
