A coastal state is a state in the United States of America that has a coastline or shoreline along a major body of water. There are three oceans that border the United States: the Pacific Ocean (this includes the Gulf of Alaska and the Bering Sea), the Atlantic Ocean/Gulf of Mexico, and the Arctic Ocean (this includes the Chukchi Sea and the Beaufort Sea). The Great Lakes are contained inside the North American continent and consist of Lake Superior, Lake Michigan, Lake Huron, Lake Erie, and Lake Ontario.

Thirty states have a coastline, twenty-three with an ocean coastline and eight with a Great Lakes shoreline; New York is both an ocean state and a Great Lakes state. As of June 2017, the total estimated population of all coastal states was 252,771,773.
