I've never been to Venice, but I was in Amsterdam a year and a half ago. Does anyone know of any other cities that have a large and prominent canal system? I'm just curious if there are any other cities that have them. Thanx.

The city where I live, Ottawa, has a long canal called the Rideau Canal. In (our horrible, freezing, unlivable) winter, the Canal freezes and turns into the world's longest skating rink! It's a huge tourist attraction that brings millions of tourists.

Venice Beach, California
Ok, it never became a full city of canals like Abbot Kinney [?] imagined but it has the grand canal and some others. In addition there are a lot of walking street like the most famous Ocean Front Walk...
