Los Angeles may be known for its traffic, but just a ferry ride away sits Catalina Island, a place where cars are restricted and golf carts rule the streets. About 1 million tourists visit this rocky island each year, and although visitors can’t drive a car, they can bike, kayak, parasail, swim, zipline and scuba dive. California does allow a very small number of registered cars on Catalina, but there is currently a 14-year waiting list to own a car there.10 U.S. places where bikes and boats rule
