North America, the world's third largest continent, includes countries and dozens of small island
possessions and territories - mostly in the Caribbean. It contains all Caribbean and Central America countries, Canada, Mexico and the United States of America - three of the largest countries on the planet, as well as Greenland - the world's largest island.
The continent also includes the fairly flat Canadian Shield, the
Great Plains of the central interior, the Appalachian Mountains in
eastern USA, and the coastal plain running from New Jersey down the
Atlantic coast and along the Gulf of Mexico. Three of its five Great
Lakes are among the five largest lakes in the world.
North America is often divided into
sub regions but no universally accepted divisions exist. "Central America" comprises the southern portion of the continent, but its northern terminus varies between sources. The United Nations includes Mexico in Central America, while most other definitions of the region do not (e.g., the European Union excludes Belize and Mexico from the area). The term Middle America is sometimes used to refer to Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean collectively.
Northern America is used to refer to the northern countries and territories of North America: Canada, the United States, Greenland, Bermuda, and St. Pierre and Miquelon. They are often considered distinct from the southern portion of the Americas, which largely comprise Latin America.
The Caribbean refers to the islands in and around the Caribbean Sea and the surrounding coasts.
The largest city in North America is Mexico City; other leading
cities include New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, and
Toronto. North America is served by an extensive network of
international and domestic airlines as well as a well-maintained
