Fort Lauderdale has the distinction of being known as both the "Venice of America" and the yachting capital of the world. The city's canal system is extensive and you can get just about anywhere by boat. Because of this, there are "water taxis" that follow various routes around the city. For $20 (2012 prices), you can purchase a ticket that is good all day. For more information, visit WaterTaxi.com. Photo Copyright 2004 Robert Giordano.
