Drawn up in 1793, the Canada-United States border is the longest international border in the world. Set between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, it weaves and meanders through forests, lakes, rivers, mountains, and towns. Much of the border follows the 49th parallel, itself established in the 1760s as the boundary between the province of Quebec and the state of New York.

The border separates the second and fourth largest countries in the world by area. By sharing a land boundary line, the US and Canada have a lot in common. But these nations can also boast some unique aspects about this vast and impressive frontier. So, are you interested in learning more about the borderland?
