Studying in the United States
The east coast of the United States is best known for the large cities of New York, Philadelphia and Washington DC (the seat of government of the United States). All the threads come together in the metropolises. This is where the control centers for art and culture, economy and finance, politics and media are located. Never sleep cities with a multitude of multicultural restaurants, a sea of museums and sights as well as thousands of shops for an extensive shopping expedition await you. The states on the east coast include Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia.
However, the east coast of the USA has a lot more to offer: roaring rivers and impressive mountains, extensive wilderness and idyllic mountain villages, miles of sandy beaches and the Atlantic Ocean. Scenic highlights such as Niagara Falls, Shenandoah National Park, the panoramic road Blue Ridge Parkway and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park are just a few highlights of the region. History and culture as well as urban adventure and nature are united here.
The states of Washington (WA) – “Evergreen State” and Oregon (OR) – “Beaver State” – which lie on the coast of the Pacific Ocean, form the beautiful region of the Pacific Northwest.
The Cascades, a volcanic mountain range that runs through Oregon from north to south, offer attractive conditions for recreational activities such as hiking, biking, swimming, fishing and skiing. You will find a unique mountain landscape with glacier-covered peaks, deep gorges, waterfalls and crystal-clear lakes. The gigantic Mount Hood impresses with its size and the dark blue radiant Crater Lake in the Crater Lake National Park with its depth.
On the nearly 645 km long Pacific coast of the state of Oregon you will find idyllic coastal towns, historic lighthouses and fine sandy beaches. History buffs will be won over by the east of the Pacific Northwest. Traces of the first settlers to cross the Rocky Mountains on the Oregon Trail can still be found here today.
The “Evergreen State” is what Washington is called because of its lush forests. The dense, subtropical rainforest in the Olympic National Park is only part of this forest area. But miles of beaches along the Pacific Ocean, snow-capped mountains, dry deserts, rocky river valleys and even volcanoes (such as Mount Rainier) that you can climb on also attract visitors to this region. Seattle, one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and the Pacific coast with the offshore islands of the San Juan chain of islands, where killer whales can be seen from May to October, are further highlights.
