A region is a geographical term for a section or area of a place that has common characteristics that people or their surroundings share. Some of these similarities may include language, religion, climate or landforms, to name a few. Sub-regions can also be found in a region which shows smaller areas of the region. Sometimes, regions may be identified as a region based on a historical event or place.
The Southern Colonies, for instance, is a region of the United States that had something in common because these states had a very similar climate and livelihood. People in the Southern Colonies grew crops. Tourism regions are based on a tourist trap that has become popular. One such example is Tuscany, Italy.
