About United States of America : 

The United States, which is a federation of 50 states and one federal district, Washington D.C., is divided into four geographic regions.

The East Coast of the US, also known as the Atlantic Coast and the Atlantic Seaboard, has 14 states with shorelines on the Atlantic Ocean. New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida are among the popular states. Interestingly, the 13 original colonies of Great Britain in North America are all located along the East Coast.
Some of these states in the east coast also come under Southern US. Popularly known as American South, the states in these regions are a cradle of several cultural influences. While Tennessee is the birthplace of jazz and blues music, some of the best American writers have come from the South. In fact, Harper Lee is from Alabama. The states in the Southern US had earned much reputation as the major hub for tobacco and cotton farming.

The Western US is the largest region of the country as it spans more than half the area of the United States. The most geographically diverse region in the country is home to the Rocky Mountains, Sierra Nevada, Mojave Desert, and the Great Plains. It has considerably younger and diverse culture. California is a wonderful example of what happens when Spanish meets the Mexican.

The Midwestern United States (or the Midwest) comprises seven states: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin. After Chicago, Columbus and Indianapolis are the largest cities. Sault Ste. Marie in Michigan is the oldest city in the region. It's history with the French missionaries and explorers go back to 1668.

This interactive map of US States helps you explore the US to the fullest.
