Fort Lauderdale: Cruise the Canals

5 of 11

Miami’s northern neighbor calls itself the Venice of America, a reference to the 165 miles of inland waterways that wind around the city’s prettiest real estate. The poshest way to see the sights: Gondolas West (from $180 for a 1 1/2-hour sunset tour for up to six people), on Captain Chris McCoy’s 22-foot electric boat. The teak-trimmed vessel barely whispers as it glides toward downtown high-rises or behind stately backyards.
