Visiting Point Roberts
A geopolitical oddity, Point Roberts is a part of the United States that is not physically connected to it, making it a pene-enclave of the U.S. It is located on the southernmost tip of the Tsawwassen Peninsula, south of Delta, British Columbia, Canada, and can be reached by land from the rest of the United States only by traveling through Canada. It can be reached directly from the rest of Washington and the U.S. by crossing Boundary Bay by sea or air.
