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

1     Visit the Middle Atlantic Subregion, and you will be in for a surprise! This subregion 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 and go swimming in the summer. You can also go sightseeing in New York City.
 
2     Most of the boundaries in the Middle Atlantic states are formed by water. So, it makes sense to start our tour along the coast. The eastern boundary of this subregion is the Atlantic Ocean. Long Island, New York, is separated from Connecticut by the Long Island Sound. Part of New York's northeastern state 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 five Great Lakes. Pennsylvania's northwestern boundary also borders Lake Erie.
 
3     Along the coast of this subregion, 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 Subregion. You know this place as New York City. Millions of people come to Manhattan to see famous places and things like Times Square, the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and the Empire State Building. Tourists also enjoy visiting the museums, Broadway shows, and many stores.
