States of America Solution

Home | Icebreakers | Puzzles | States of America Solution

The Northernmost state is... Alaska
The Southernmost state is... Hawaii
The Westernmost state is... Alaska!
The Easternmost state is... Alaska!!!

Most of the answers are reasonably straightforward except for the easternmost one. They depend on two facts:

  1. The Aleutian Islands are part of Alaska.

  2. The Aleutian Islands cross the 180-degree line of longitude, so they cross over into the Eastern Hemisphere, which means that a small island called Semisopochnai is the most Eastern part of the United States!
