North America is the third-largest of the world's continents, and it is located primarily between the Arctic Circle and the Tropic of Cancer. It is the most populous continent. It stretches for more than 5,000 miles (8,000 km) and comes within 500 miles (800 km) of both the North Pole and the Equator, with an east-west extent of 5,000 miles. It is the largest continent on the planet.

Canada's Shield, the diverse eastern region, and the Caribbean can be separated into five physical regions: the mountainous west, the Canadian Shield, the mountainous west, the Caribbean, and the Great Plains. Mexico and Central America's western coast is connected to the mountainous west, while the lowlands and coastal plains of the country's eastern region extend into the region's western section.

North America's natural features include the Rocky Mountains in the west and the Appalachian Mountains in the east. The north has many glacial lakes, notably the Great Lakes. The Great Divide stretches north-south through the Rocky Mountains. The Mississippi/Missouri, Rio Grande, and St. Lawrence all drain into the Gulf of Mexico (part of the Atlantic Ocean). All three rivers go west to the Pacific.
