A good distraction while waiting to cross the border. It did speak to the current political climate with Trump in power. The arch is just before the border. The passengers can get off the car and take a picture whilst the car crawls towards the...More

This is at the Canada US border, so you can take a break looking around, but it is nothing spectacular.

Walked among the beautiful flowers and manicured lawns. Lots of room to walk or sit and view the ocean.

Peace Arch State Park is right at the no-mans land between the Canadian and US customs stations. Theoretically, it's right at the border. But in order to access it, you'll need to be on the Canadian side. Lots of grass for picnics and right along...More

Lots of history here. Gorgeous green lawns with lots of room to walk or play. Totally recommend it if you're up that way.

Hi Sambra, I take it that one of you is American and the other Canadian? There are no neutral businesses (stores or motels )on the border. The park is closely monitored by the border patrol..

You need a passport to cross the border . Before 911 you could cross with other government issued ID. Since 911 things are tighter. As you are on the Canadian side you can go into the Duty Free bit you can only purchase if... More
