Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

— 12 nights

Marvelous City

Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Praia do Leme and Vermelha Beach. Kids will enjoy Copacabana Beach and Fortaleza de Santa Cruz da Barra. And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Praia de Ipanema, examine the collection at Museu Nacional De Belas Artes, don't miss a visit to Escadaria Selaron, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Church of Our Lady of the Candelaria.

For maps, traveler tips, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Rio de Janeiro online tour itinerary builder.

Ecological Capital of Brazil

The word "Brazil" isn't often mentioned in the same breath as "excellent urban planning"--except in Curitiba.

Change things up with these side-trips from Curitiba: Morretes (Estrada do Central & Parana Encantado HISGEOPAR). There's lots more to do: examine the collection at Museu Oscar Niemeyer, pause for some serene contemplation at Paroquia do Santissimo Sacramento, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Igreja Bom Pastor, and look for all kinds of wild species at Parque Estadual do Marumbi.

More than the country of car-packed streets seen in TV shows and movies, the United States of America is a complex and diverse home to over 300 million people living in a wide range of landscapes and climates. From its big-city skyscrapers to its sprawling natural parks, the country's ''melting pot'' combines many ethnic groups that share a strong sense of national identity despite their cultural differences. A country of road trips and big blue skies, the United States harbors orderly cities filled with restaurants, parks, museums, and innumerable sightseeing opportunities, as well as pristine natural areas perfect for a holiday in the great outdoors. To see as much as you can of this diverse land quickly, drive over some of the more than 6 million km (4 million mi) of highways leading through deserts, mountain peaks, fertile fields, and giant urban centers.
