The United States is a large country with a wide range of physical features, from tall mountains to deep valleys, rivers, lakes, and plains. Sierra Nevada - Located in California and Nevada, the Sierra Nevada Mountains are named for their snowy peaks, which run 400 miles from north to south along the border between these two states.
Appalachian Mountains - Along the eastern United States, the Appalachian Range runs northeast from Alabama up through coastal states like North Carolina, Virginia, and Maryland. Coastal Plains - Two major groups of coastal plains are found in the south and southeastern United States, known as the Gulf and Atlantic Coastal Plains for their proximity to these bodies of water. Columbia Plateau - Located in the northwestern United States, the Columbia Plateau is a high, raised stretch of land between the Cascades and the Rocky Mountains. Colorado Plateau - Covering the Four Corners region of the Untied States, where Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona meet at a single point, the Colorado Plateau is a high desert covering 337,000 square kilometers. Mississippi - Part of the longest river system in the United States, the Mississippi runs from Minnesota down to New Orleans, Louisiana, where it drains into the Gulf of Mexico.


Colorado - The Colorado River runs through the southwest, beginning in the Rocky Mountains, through the Grand Canyon, and finally flowing down into Mexico.
Rio Grande - One of the longest rivers on the continent, the Rio Grande flows from Colorado down to Texas, forming part of the US-Mexico border. Great Lakes - The Great Lakes are located in northeastern United States, along the border between the US and Canada. The longest un-dammed river in the contiguous USA is the Yellowstone River; it is 692 miles long.
Rivers provide drinking water, irrigation water, transportation, electrical power, drainage, food, and recreation.
While some of the USA rivers and lakes serve as vital waterways for inland navigation others are useful sources of irrigation and power generation.
Besides the USA rivers, the USA river map also shows the various lakes, streams and other water bodies in the USA.


Andrew Goldsmith made this representation of the United States using words to represent the geographic boundaries of the named states.
The longest river in the USA is the Missouri River; it is a tributary of the Mississippi River and is 2,540 miles long. For certain cities like New Orleans, river basins usher in growth and prosperity for the city and its people. Of the five Great Lakes, only Lake Michigan falls entirely within the territory of the United States with the remaining four being shared with Canada.
