International Peace Garden(Boissevain, MB / Dunseith, ND)
The Peace Towers: two are in the United States and two are in Canada
"Visitors from either country can enter the park via US 281 or MB 10, without passing through customs, and may move throughout the park (crossing the international boundary at will) without restriction. However, customs stations for Canada and the U.S. are located on the roads just north and south (respectively) of the access drives for the garden, requiring all visitors – including those returning to the country from which they arrived – to go through the immigration procedures of their destination country upon leaving the garden."

"Many Caribbean codes were assigned based on alphabetic abbreviations of the territory name ... This follows the traditional letter assignments on telephone dials." Those alphabetic abbreviations are listed in parentheses next to the area codes. ROS for Dominica is for the capital Roseau. BIM for Barbados is based on the following. "Other names or nicknames associated with Barbados include 'Bim' and 'Bimshire'. The origin is uncertain but several theories exist. The National Cultural Foundation of Barbados says that 'Bim' was a word commonly used by slaves and that it derives from the Igbo term bém from bé mu meaning 'my home, kindred, kind'"
Bermuda isn't in the Caribbean it is "roughly 578 nautical miles (1,070 km (665 mi)) east-southeast of Cape Hatteras on the Outer Banks of North Carolina and about 594 nautical miles (1,100 km (684 mi)) southeast of Martha's Vineyard of Massachusetts. It is 898 nautical miles (1,664 km (1,034 mi)) northeast of Miami, Florida, and 667 nautical miles (1,236 km (768 mi)) from Cape Sable Island, in Nova Scotia, Canada." The distance is further to any islands in the Caribbean.
The remaining area codes in the North American Numbering Plan are United States places in the Pacific: Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands(670), Guam(671), and American Samoa(684). Those will be included in townoak.com/oceania.

Saint Pierre and Miguelon is "25 kilometres (16 mi) from the Burin Peninsula of Newfoundland, Canada."
The islands that are divided into two places are Hispaniola(divided between Haiti and Dominican Republic) and Saint Martin(divided between Sint Maarten and Collectivity of Saint Martin)
"Saint Barthélemy .. was a Swedish colony for any significant length of time .. Symbolism from the Swedish national arms, the Three Crowns, still appears in the island's coat of arms." "Both the airport and the island's main town of Gustavia are named for King Gustav III of Sweden, under whom Sweden obtained the island from France in 1784 (it was sold back to France in 1878). In 1984, Swedish Minister of Communications, Hans Gustafsson, inaugurated the terminal building of the Gustaf III Airport." Caribbean paradise holds on to its Swedish past
"Caribbean Netherlands .. islands of Bonaire, Sint Eustatius, and Saba .. Bonaire (including the islet of Klein Bonaire) is one of the Leeward Antilles and is located close to the coast of Venezuela. Sint Eustatius and Saba are in the main Lesser Antilles group and are located south of Sint Maarten and northwest of Saint Kitts and Nevis."
Sint Maarten was the last place to become part of the North American Numbering Plan in September 30, 2011. It is possible others could follow. Aruba is one possibility. "Telephone numbers in Aruba have country code 297. It is one of the few countries outside Africa with a country code starting with 2. Before Aruba seceded from the Netherlands Antilles in 1986, it was part of the Netherlands Antilles numbering plan (+599) with phone numbers starting with +599 8"
