"Border Irregularities" Point Roberts by kyrzar

Point Roberts Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 11 photos

Being a geeky geography nut, I had to visit this little oddity on my trip to BC. Jason humored me.

This little peninsula sticks back down across the 49th parallel, so the tip is US territory even though you have to drive a decent stretch through Canada or take a boat to get to any other US territory.

This should keep all those vicious Canadian terrorists out.

This is the border at the top of the bluff above the beach. Notice how the Canadian side in Tsawassen is pretty thickly developped while the US side in Point Roberts is mostly woods.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:almost Canadian
  • Cons:Back in George W land
  • In a nutshell:Where else does gas come in US $ per liter?

    This place is stupid. People have to cross border TWICE to get to Washington mainland. It should be part of Canada.
