All six New England states lie along the Atlantic coastline except Vermont.
However, Vermont’s west and east borders are mainly water, Lake Champlain forms a good part of its western border with New York, and the Connecticut River forms Vermont’s entire eastern border with New Hampshire.
Vermont is the most rural of all the states.
Two thirds of its residents live outside cities.
The longest river in New England is the Connecticut River, which flows from northeastern New Hampshire for 655 kilometers (407 miles), emptying into Long Island Sound.
