The United States of America is located on the continent of North America. Some confusion often arises as to the location of the United States of America because the nation is also named after the continent upon which it is found, North America.
North America is comprised of three nations: the United States of America, Canada, and Mexico.
The State of Hawaii is also a part of the United States, but it is not found on the same continent. Instead it is located in the middle of the central Pacific region. In fact, Hawaii is one of the few places in the world that is not considered to be part of any continent, along with a few other small island areas, such as New Zealand and French Polynesia.
