Venture out of the city with trips to Vermelha Beach (in Paraty) and Fortaleza de Santa Cruz da Barra (in Niteroi). The adventure continues: make a trip to Maua Square, see the interesting displays at Museu Nacional De Belas Artes, take in the history at Sao Luis Fortress, and steep yourself in history at Parque Lage.

Specialty Museums · Nightlife · Beaches
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.
