There is a city in Florida that has more canals than Venice and you should definitely visit it
Dreaming of a gondola ride through the canals of Venice but can't fly to Italy this summer? It's okay, because right in the USA there is its own Venice, and it is located in Florida. What is this “wonderland” and where to look for it, the publication said Travel and Leisure.
The small Florida town has more canals than anywhere else in the world, including Venice. The locals call it "waterfront wonderland". A city with a population of less than 200 is voted the best summer destination by Airbnb.
Cape Coral has over 400 miles (643 km) of navigable waterways that can take you to the Kalushatchi River, Matlacha Pass, and the Gulf of Mexico. You can travel on the canal that runs through downtown Cape Coral.
The center of Cape Coral is a relatively new city, founded only about 60 years ago, but already thriving. In 2017, Forbes named Cape Coral America's fastest growing polis. In it you will find everything that big cities offer: restaurants, bars, shops, even an art gallery and a historical museum.
But Cape Coral still retains the charm of a small town. The farmers market is still one of the most beloved attractions. Stop by here to meet the locals and sample fresh produce, homemade jams, and even homemade guacamole. Or book a tour of the nearby Wicked Dolphin Rum Distillery for some of the finest spirits the area has to offer.
But no attraction can match the city's access to wildlife. Cape Coral is on the coast of Florida, right across the Kalushatchee River from Fort Myers. This is a unique ecosystem with many rivers, bays and estuaries. You can explore the coast in a kayak to get a close look at the bustling oyster coast, islands and seaweed flats.

Head to Matlacha Pass National Wildlife Refuge to see the endangered West Indian manatee, eastern indigo snake or bald eagle.
