Wow!

I've never heard of this before so I google mapped it and looked. From what I looks like on the street view, the border isn't protected at all.

What's extra weird, is that there doesn't appear to be any roads that go from the US side to the Canadian side! You could walk across no problem, but I don't see any major roads that you could use to drive across.

Maybe there is a ferry service that takes you to the mainland US? Like, how do you get cars and stuff?! :lol:

It actually has it own little POE on Tyee Drive.

The reason I ask is because if I were to ever think about employment in Vancouver (not really a pressing an idea) while my wife's on her greencard this might be the place to do it. It would allow access to Vancouver yet allow someone to keep US residency. But I'm not sure how freely they would let a US greencard holder cross the border....I mean you'd have to cross on a nearly day to day basis. My guess is that the guys at that little POE would learn you are a resident of the area pretty quick.

We have friends who live just a few blocks north of Point Roberts. They say people POE everyday. There's even a charter bus for folks who live in Point Roberts who then go to work in Washington State. Fascinating isn't it?

Okay, so it sounds very normal. I did learn one major negative - if you need medical attention, unless you have a boat you have to drive through 2 borders to get it.
