Giethoorn, Holland: A Town With No Roads “Founded in the 13th Century CE, Giethoorn is referred to as the Venice of the North, due to the fact that the town has no roads for cars, and uses canals (whose lengths total to almost five miles) with small boats to get around. There are over 50 wooden bridges over the canals, and many of the farmhouse-style homes are centuries old.” - Lost In America
