Our State Geography in a Snap: landforms and regions
Reprinted with permission from the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction  website.
The Appalachian Mountains , the largest range in the eastern United States, stretch from Canada to northern Alabama.
Regions: The three landforms of North Carolina make up the three major geographic regions of the state: the Coastal Plain , the Piedmont , and the Mountains . The Coastal Plain Region is usually divided into two sub regions: the Outer Coastal Plain, commonly referred to as the Tidewater; and the Inner Coastal, which is less impacted by the effects of the ocean as it is located further inward.
