About the East Coast States Map

This East Coast States Map is a map of the seventeen states found all along the Atlantic Ocean. This area has several other names—including the Atlantic Coast, the Eastern Seabord and the Atlantic Seabord (“seabord” being an old-fashioned word for “coast.”)

About these states

The East Coast plays a very significant part in the history of the United States. The original thirteen colonies under Great Britain are all found in the East Coast—namely: Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Georgia, Connecticut, Massachusetts Bay, Maryland, South Carolina, New Hampshire, Virginia, New York, North Carolina, and Rhode Island.

Climatic Conditions

There are three climate regions from the northern to the southern tips of the east coast. The southern part of Maine till Philadelphia experiences a temperate climate, and from the southern part of Washington DC to the middle of Florida, the region experiences a subtropical climate. The south of Florida is the warmest part of the coastal states, with a tropical climate.

The East Coast receives a good amount of rain throughout the year, and this holds true for snow as well, as the northern areas in the East Coast experience snow from three-to-five months in a year, making it a true winter wonderland.

Important Landmark destinations in the region

Because the East Coast plays such an important role in US history, it’s chock-full of places to visit. Just off the cuff we can name the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building and the Brooklyn Bridge in New York; the White House, the Capitol Building, the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument in DC, the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia—and down in Florida you must see the Everglades, and of course, Disneyworld and EPCOT center in Orlando. The world famous Niagara Falls is also part of the East Coast.

Geography of East Coast states

The geography of the coastal states is quite beautiful. And, as the different seasons go by, East Coast citizens get to enjoy nature in all its different stages throughout the year.

As it’s situated on a coastline, there are many rocky beaches with outlying islands. When you check out maps of the coastal states you’ll see two main mountainous areas—the Green Mountains (Vermont) and the White Mountains (New Hampshire). Part of the East Coast is a plateau, but most of its citizens live and work in lowland and valley areas, such as the Aroostook Valley in the north of Maine, the Connecticut River Valley between Vermont and New Hampshire, and on the border of New York and Vermont, the Lake Champlain Lowland.

People and Culture

People who live in the East Coast are friendly and helpful, although it may take a little while before they warm up. They are generally very direct, and so when you ask them a question be prepared for them to give you a straight, if not blunt, answer. The culture is a little bit more fast paced than in the more laid-back West Coast—in fact, there is a running joke about how fast East Coast-ers walk in the streets of Boston or New York City.

The dress code in the coastal states is also quite formal—business attire is very much the norm for meetings. The people of the coastal states take great stock in family and tradition.

The arts are very much alive and well in the East Coast, with a rich tradition in theater, opera, ballet and music in all of the major cities. Some of the best and oldest schools for the arts are found in this part of the US.


The East Coast is more densely populated than the other parts of the United States, coming in at 117.1 million in 2016—in fact, this is the coastal area with the largest population on the map. The population is still growing, and indeed is growing more diverse, as different families from all over the world are making the East Coast their home.


The center of banking and finance in the US can be found in the East Coast. Of course we’re talking about New York—where the NASDAQ, as well as the largest stock exchange in the country, the NYSE, are located. A long list of the titans of industry are also in the East Coast—from pharmaceutical companies to telecommunications, as well as global insurance, media and manufacturing companies.

National Parks

The National Parks in the East Coast are a must-see for any visitor. We have already mentioned the Everglades in Florida, but there’s also Shenandoah National Park, which is 105 miles long and encompasses part of the Appalachian Mountains, and is perhaps most beautiful in May and September.

There’s also the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Mammoth Cave National Park, and Acadia National Park, among others in a long list. One wonderful tour that visitors take is to travel along the map of the coastal states, visiting these national parks.
