How Many States Are There in The United States

The United States of America is made up of 50 states. 48 of the states are contiguous. Hawaii and Alaska are not attached to the rest of the states.

Note that the US capital city, Washington, D.C., is not a state, nor does it reside within any of the fifty states. It is a district all on its own, located in the east and bordered by Maryland and Virginia. It should not be confused with the north-western state of Washington, home to the city of Seattle.
