Point Roberts, Washington, U.S.A.

Are you ready to hear about the most Canadian city in the United States? An American city who measures gasoline in litres; uses the Canadian water supply; and if there’s an emergency, the Canadian fire department responds? Welcome to Point Roberts, Washington.

Back in the late 1800’s when the American/Canadian border was set at the 49th parallel, the gentlemen marking the land didn’t notice Point Roberts! As a result, there’s about 1000 square feet of land off of mainland USA that is apart of Washington. And it’s super funny!

Unfortunately, when I was there, it was pretty overcast, so my photos didn’t turn out so great.

The street is in the States, and to the left is Canada!

All in all, it is a very underwhelming little city, despite being on a gorgeous part of the Georgia Strait! But, as always, I had fun. My next little excursion will be to London, and I don’t mean London, Ontario. 🙂
