In this topic, you post good thing about every reigon in the United States.

New England
- The far Northeast states of America. Known for its education, money, and lobsters. Boston is a very historical city. New England is great on all 4 seasons, in the summer, you can go to its little old-style beach towns, in the fall, you can go to the woods and watch the leaves change, in the winter, you can go skiing, and in the spring, its warm and nice. Vermont is known for maple syrup, mountains, and dairy. Maine is known for lobsters, the northern rocky coast, and the historical Old Orchard Beach. Massachusetts is known for Boston, Cape Cod, and the Nantucket, which is a summer spot for the rich and famous.

Mid-Atlantic - Where you will find most of America's history. Its also where you'll find the good pizza (NYC) and good cheesesteak (Philly). This is also where America started. The Constitution was signed in Philly, and the first state is Delaware. NYC is where nearly all of the European immigrants came in. This is also where the nation's capital is based (Washington DC). Mid-Atlanticers usually go to the Jersey Shore, Delaware, and Ocean City, Maryland for their beach break.

The South
- The Southeast corner of the United States. They are known for warm weather, beautiful beaches, southern Appalachians, and amazing food. The seasons are summer, SUPER summer, summer, and spring. They have the most noticeable accents. Football is very popular down there, as well as NASCAR and religion. The South also holds one of the 2 Disney parks in the US. The South should not always be written off as dumb and redneck because they have large cities as well and not all stereotypes are true.

Midwest
- This region was known for being strong in its industry. Many cars have come from Detroit. The Midwest was also the start of the unfinished Route 66. Now, the Midwest has many museums with its history of the industry. Chicago is the nucleus of the Midwest, and its also known for the world-class amusement park, Cedar Point, and thanks to the Great Lakes, the Midwest actually does have beaches.

Southwest
- The spicy hot reigon, known for deserts, the Grand Canyon, Mexican food, cactuses, Vegas, Hollywood, and San Diego. Like the South, the Southwest has very hot summers and weak winters, the southwest usually goes over the hundreds in the summer, but don't let that scare you, they have a dry heat. This was where the second half of route 66 went, going all the way to California. The Southwest also has the other US Disney park. If you like jello, the Southwest also has the Jello Belt.

Northwest
- Has many national parks, including Yellowstone, Glacier, and Cascadia. The inland Northwest is extremley clean, and sparsely populated with Wyoming being the least populated US state. The coastal Northwest, which is often called the "Pacific Northwest" is known for technology, coffee, and rain. It rains alot in Seattle, but it makes summer very green. Seattle is the place to be if want to get away from the heat that the rest of the US has in the summer.

Each state is diverse and offers something. We all are strong and united as one.

Northeast...has some of the best cities and tourist sites.


Southeast... is not as wacky, racist, and white as most people think. The land does have many conservatives but these are social conservatives and just has a different way of life, not meaning its a bad one....

The Midwest ...makes the grain for my bread...LOL, seriously is the place where English is articulated best.

The Southwest...I underrated and extremely beautiful place that most city lovers here would never truly appreciate.

The Northwest...is the only part of America you can actually get lost if you wander into the woods....besides Alaska....which fits here anyways. (I actually remember seeing Alaska from a plane on my way to Tokyo, haha its brutal there...)

Seattle Rain: Myth or Conspiracy?

Most people have this belief that it just pours all the time in Seattle. It's actually cloudy--not rainy. Mobile, Alabama is the rainiest city in the US. Not Seattle.
