Did you know that Venice, CA has canals? I didn’t until someone mentioned that I should go check them out. So of course I did! It wasn’t quite Venice, Italy, but still pretty cool. A lush little neighborhood surrounds the canals and it’s a quiet little oasis in the city. The water doesn’t come right up to the houses, like in Italy, but sidewalks and greenery run along the water. People still have personal boats and canoes that they access from their backyards and small bridges let you cross from block to block.
