From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The contiguous United States, or officially the conterminous United States, are the 48 U.S. states that touch one another plus the District of Columbia.

This excludes the states of Alaska and Hawaii, and all island territories and U.S. possessions such as American Samoa, U.S. Virgin Islands, Northern Mariana Islands, Guam and Puerto Rico.
