About This Quiz

People love going around the United States of America via buses, airplanes, and trains. Of course, a good old-fashioned ride is also possible via cars, SUVs, or even huge RVs. Whatever you use for the trip, it's always good to get a map and see just where you're going! 

This is especially applicable in a country as large and as wide as the USA. In fact, it's so expansive that it has been subdivided into various regions. And many tourists and travelers often take a trip toward areas that are near the coasts. That's why some of the states included in the Northeastern U.S. region receive a lot of visitors, both domestic and international.

But it's not just those coastal states that are interesting. In fact, there are so many interesting cities in this region alone that you'd want to visit them all!
