No they are Still Great Lakes. Point was they are not great enough or important enough to be labeled as seas.

People from the midwest are little fighters but in the end, it was all for naught. No one outside the midwest would ever mention "3rd coast", the title itself is self deprecating, and a lame .

Except Google Earth - their new addition is the "Third Coast" of The Great Lakes. I guess they don't think it's too self deprecating and lame.

Even though this is my probably 15th time mentioning this, nobody in the Midwest really refers to them as 'The Third Coast'.

I have never head anyone be like "Yeah, let's go to the Third Coast" or "My cousin lives out on the Third Coast"...

Hmm, the aquarium where i live is called "THe Great Lakes Aquarium"

This isn't a North Vs. South thread. It's not even a Gulf Coast Vs Great Lakes thread. It's just a general question on what is the US's 3rd coast.

All you Naysayers keep thinking that we're walkin' around up here sayin' "Man, this 3rd coast is so cool, we live on a 'coast', and it's JUST like the East Coast, West Coast and Gulf Coast.

That's true - the starter of this thread made the suggestion, then ripped on the Great Lakes for thinking they're a Third Coast. He evidently wanted to antagonize. Still, though, Google Earth calls it the Third Coast.

third coast - Google Maps

It seems to really be more popular in Texas than the rest of the gulf coast. You hear lots of local rappers from Houston say it.

Ahhh thats where the whole "third coast born and I'm Texas raised" phrase comes from. I never knew what Texas rappers meant by that.
