Point Roberts is a remnant of a treaty from 1846 which separated Canada from the United States along the 49th Parallel without realizing that the peninsula would fall under American territory. It is now an unincorporated community in Whatcom County, Washington which measures three kilometres by five kilometres and is home to over a thousand residents. Visitors must show a passport to cross the border but inside can enjoy several parks, marinas and beaches as well as shops and restaurants.
