You’re craving: The romance of a gondola ride
Try: Fort Lauderdale. Home to the most yachters in the Sunshine State, this small city earns its nickname “the Venice of America” thanks to its extensive waterways and intricate canals system. Just like in its Venetian doppleganger, you can sail past the city at a snail’s pace atop a Water Taxi or by taking a romantic (and even more leisurely) gondola ride.
