US States along the coastline and border

Going clockwise from the northeastern most state, name the contiguous US mainland states along the coast and border in order
For those non-Americans, there is a similar (and harder) quiz here
For the Great Lakes states, this quiz considers the lake shore rather than the border over water (it's more fun this way)
Some states appear more than once

Fun quiz! Definitely 5 stars. Two issues: 1) "Mainland" is often interpreted as including Alaska. 2) In the Great Lakes area, coastline and border don't agree. That is, state borders extend into the lakes in such a way that Wisconsin, Illinois, and Indiana do not border Canada.

Got confused at the beginning as maine is not the northernmost of the continental US states, but however it is minnesota. On some maps it just appears for maine to be the northernmost, but if you campare its latitude to minnesota minnesota is muh further north

It's actually Sumas, Washignton, as a faulty survey placed the border north or the actual 49th parallel but is still the enforced border, it has slightly higher coordinates that Minnesota, and is about 2 degrees off of Maine

It says NorthEASTERN most state. Also, I think the Fall River and Eastern Shore part is nitpicking quite a bit. But that's just my opinion.

I know this is only counting contiguous states, but technically Alaska is the most northeastern because it is both the furthest north AND the furthest east.

@MyMindWentBlank Alaska is in the west, not the east.

Wow... I spend so much time learning global geography that I let my national geography slip! I'm American, but I found this quiz significantly harder than the Afro-Eurasian Coastline quiz.

Agreed. I think we should be given slightly more time on this one, to match the other quiz.

This would be a lot better if you didn't have the yellow bar. Instead of randomly guessing, you have to do them in order of the way the creator listed them, which is seemingly random. This would be way more enjoyable if there wasn't a bar.
