Southeast map

The Southeast

Many of the most low-lying areas in the United States are in the Southeast. The Mississippi River, which tracks the borders of Arkansas and Mississippi, empties into the Gulf of Mexico in Louisiana. States such as Alabama, South Carolina, and Georgia have piney forests and swamps, and Florida, a peninsula between the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico, has a tropical climate.

The Appalachian Highlands

The Appalachian Mountains are the region's dominant geographic feature. Several mountain ranges make up the Appalachians, including the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Smokies. Kentucky, North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia are the region's states, and along the Atlantic Ocean in North Carolina, a thin chain of islands called the Outer Banks protect the mainland from the sea.
