15) US-Canadian Border

The border between the United States and Canada is the longest border in the world and it is non-militarized. The Peace Arch, located in Blaine, Washington and Surrey, British Columbia (near Vancouver), is a symbol of that openness. Inscribed on it are the words, “May these gates never be closed,” in honor of the signing of the Treaty of Ghent, defining the border.
