The West Coast is comprised of 3 states and two major regions, California (its own state and region unto itself) and the Pacific Northwest (Oregon and Washington).

The East Coast has many more states and more varying sub-regions. For instance, New England, mid-Atlantic (generally NY - DC capital region), the southeast, and Florida.

What states first come to mind when you think of the "East Coast"?

Texas. I know it's on the Gulf of Mexico, but hey, if people can call it a Southwestern state, I can call it East Coast.

Massachusetts and Maine. I've never visited the East Coast but that's always what I imagine. The lighthouses and rocky areas of Maine and the coastline in Massachusetts.

Having passed elementary school geography, I would say those states along the coast between Maine and Florida.
