why aren't Alaska and Hawaii considered part of the Continental U.S.?


Actually, it's probably more accurate to say that they are not part of the contiguous states.

Alaska is separated from Washington state by part of British Columbia, and Hawaii is out in the ocean.

Alaska is definitely part of the continent of North America. Hawaii is not part of any continent.

Confusing, yes? Sort of!
