They have a big one in Korea. It's called the DMZ and is marked with trenches, minefields, barbed wires, bunkers and about a million soldiers.

I seem to recall when I was a kid (40 years ago, or so) traveling through New Hampshire - they billed themselves "Half way between the north pole and the equator"

Never heard of it..
I always assumed it was called the 'tropic of cancer/tropic of capricorn' depending on which hemisphere you are in...
I have however, been to the equator over in Kenya . The sign says 'Jambo! Equator!' with the elevation etc on it, I have a picture of it somewhere but I can't be bothered to find it
