As the frontier expanded westward, the region west of the Mississippi River came to be known as the West. The Rocky Mountains, the Great Basin, the Pacific Coast, and the state of Hawaii in the middle of the Pacific Ocean are all included in the U.S. Census Bureau's definition of the 13 westernmost states.
