THE BRIGHT LIGHTS OF THE BIG CITY; THE TRANQUIL BEAUTY OF THE ROLLING COUNTRYSIDE; THE BUSTLING BOARDWALKS OF THE SEASHORE; AND THE SOARING HEIGHTS OF THE UNSPOILED WILDERNESS—EVERYTHING THAT PEOPLE LOVE ABOUT THE EASTERN UNITED STATES CAN BE FOUND IN THE HEARTLAND OF THE EAST COAST, THE MID-ATLANTIC
This region of the U.S.A. comprises five states and a federal district in the northeastern part of the country. While the region is dominated by the enormous megalopolis running from Washington, D.C., to New York City, it’s the large areas of more rural character to the north and west that possess some of the east’s most spectacular sights. It’s in the Mid-Atlantic where you’ll find the unfathomable urban landscape of New York City, the indescribable power of Niagara Falls, the unspeakable gravity of the Gettysburg battlefield, and the uncompromising resolve of the nation’s capital. Every city is a melting pot of humanity with unparalleled cultural attractions, and every rural highway leads to another undiscovered gem of scenic beauty or country living.
