About - United States
The United States of America, often abbreviated to U.S.A. or United States or simply the States, consists of 48 contiguous states, plus the island state of Hawaii and Alaska, which adjoins Canada. Not included in the states is the federal District of Columbia which houses the National Capital, Washington DC.

Located between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans on the North American continent, the United States is the third largest country in the World and is bordered by Canada to the North and Mexico to the South. It also is estimated to have a population in excess of 310 million making it the third most populous country in the World. With such a massive coastline, a majority of this population is distributed on the East and West Coasts, however there are great cities dotted all across the United States.

The United States is defined as much by its geography as it is by its cities and people. It boasts some of the World’s major natural destinations including National Parks, Canyons, Lakes, Waterfalls and Mountain Ranges, too numerous to individually mention.
