Georgia's largest geographical region is the Coastal Plain; it covers approximately 60 percent of the state, from the Atlantic Ocean to the Fall Line. Rivers become wider, deeper, and move more slowly, making navigation by large boats possible like the Savannah River. The land is low-lying Along Georgia’s coast. The soil typically consists of sand and clay for approximately 75 miles inland, and is not very fertile. The land tends to be poorly drained, and swampy areas are common (the Okefenokee Swamp is in the Coastal Plain). Even today, this part of the state is poorly suited for agriculture.
