Point Roberts, Washington, like the people who live here, is a mix of down home, small town charm and International consciousness. We're only 20 minutes from Vancouver International airport and not much longer from downtown Vancouver, BC. Many of our full-time residents are consultants, inventors, scientists, writers, artists and virtual business owners who enjoy the natural beauty, peace and relaxed pace in between global travels.
A geopolitical oddity, Point Roberts is a part of the United States that is not physically connected to it, making it a pene-exclave 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.
The lifestyle here evens out economic differences - most of what we do "for fun" is free! Fresh air, miles of trails through ancient forests, miles of natural beaches, ocean kayaking, sailing, biking, hiking, photography and sighting our thriving eagle community and visits from J-Pod Orca whales can be enjoyed by everyone.
Organic gardening is a big deal here and our Point Roberts Garden Club has an annual tour that showcases a breathtaking array of gardens. Their site has "must see" pictures of previous tours and funds raised each year go towards community beautification projects.
Here at Point Roberts Living, we're providing a place for all our local organizations to share their events, mission, what they have done and are doing for the community - where would you fit in?
Point Roberts lies within a depression created by Vancouver Island, the north shore mountains surrounding Vancouver, and the North Cascades (including Mount Baker). This micro-climate provides some of the mildest weather in the Pacific Northwest. With annual precipitation of about 1000 mm (40 inches), Point Roberts enjoys more sunny days and a milder climate than its neighbors.
