Cities, Plains - Middle Atlantic Region
By Trista L. Pollard
  

1     Visit the Middle Atlantic Region, and you will be in for a surprise! This region is filled with mountains, lowlands, and plains. There are also large cities and small towns. You can do many activities year round. You can go hiking, camping, and skiing in the mountains. You can visit the beaches for swimming in the summer. You can also go sightseeing in New York City. The Middle Atlantic is one of our oldest regions.
 
2     Most of the boundaries in the Middle Atlantic are water. So, it makes sense to start our tour along the coast. The eastern boundary of this region is the Atlantic Ocean. Long Island, New York, is separated from Connecticut by the Long Island Sound. Part of New York State's northeastern boundary is Lake Champlain. Its northwestern boundary is the St. Lawrence River and Lake Ontario. Lake Erie borders its western boundary. Lake Ontario and Lake Erie are two of the four Great Lakes. Pennsylvania's northwestern boundary also borders Lake Erie.
 
3     Along the coast of this region, there are bays and islands. New York Bay is in between Long Island and New Jersey. The Delaware Bay is between New Jersey and Delaware. Manhattan Island is one of the most popular stops in the Middle Atlantic Region. You know this place as New York City. Millions of people come to Manhattan to visit the museums, Broadway shows, and many stores.
