You’ve reached the Pacific Ocean! The world’s largest ocean affects all the regions it touches.
It's sunny and warm in the south but rainy in the north. Hawaii lies in the middle of the ocean. Alaska is way up north. It's an arctic state. In Alaska, some areas go months without sunlight, then they have months with no night! The areas the Pacific Ocean touches have more differences than any other regions in the U.S. Let’s look around. You might just see the country’s highest and lowest spots!
