It includes The Great Lakes, the Illinois, Mississippi, Ohio, Tennessee, and Missouri Rivers, the Gulf Coast from Mexican border in Brownsville Texas to the Florida Keys, Cuba & the Bahamas, then up the Intracoastal Waterway from Florida to New York, up the Hudson and through the Erie Canal to the St. Lawrence Seaway, Lake Erie, and Canada's 175-year-old culturally and visually rich Heritage Canals, west through Lake Huron, south through Lake Michigan to Chicago the south on the Illinois River to connect to the Mississippi.
