What is the eastern most point in the US?
Quoddy Head, Maine is the easternmost point in continental U. S. Semisopochnoi Island, Alaska is the easternmost point of all 50 states. It is an uninhabited island on the eastern side of the International Date Line.
Alaska. We are the Northern-most, Eastern-most, and Western-most State in the Union. Edit by other member: no, it is not Alaska. First of all, Alaska is not in the continental US and second of all it is also not the eastern most state in the union. The actual westernmost point is debatable: Cape Mendocino in California or western Washington.
This is actually a bit of a complicated answer, because it depends on what you really mean by "in the United States." And here's why I say that: Technically, Wake Island, an unorganized, unincorporated territory of the United States is west of the International date line, and so it is 1 day ahead of what we typically think of as "the United States." Maine is the eastern most State, and Lubec is the eastern most…
Eastport, Maine, 50 miles northeast of Machias, is the most eastern USA city. Some people believe Lubec, Maine is the most eastern city in the USA, but Lubec is not a city. Lubec is a town. Lubec's West Quoddy Head, location of the West Quoddy Head lighthouse, is the most eastern point of land in the USA. Eastport longitude: 67.01 W Machias longitude: 67.27 W Lubec longitude: 66.57 W
It depends on which route you take. If you take I-94 through Minneapolis and across North Dakota, your halfway point is on I-94 in eastern Montana, between Glendive and Miles City. If you take I-90 across southern Minnesota and South Dakota, and then US-212 to bypass most of northeastern Wyoming, your halfway point is on US-212 near Broadus, MT, in the southeast corner of Montana. Either way, your halfway point is in eastern Montana.
Maine - try looking at a map of the USA it's not too hard to spot... Sorry...correction....Alaska is the most eastern (and western and northern) of the 50 US states. The Aleutian Islands extend across the 180 longitude, and into the Eastern Hemisphere. (Hawaii is the most southern.) However, Maine would be the most eastern of the contiguous 48 states.
