Make Your Vacation More Enjoyable By Flying On US Airways by Lisa Steinway
US Airways is a major commercial airline in the United States. They fly throughout the United States, and to thirty-one countries worldwide. One of the niche services they offer is hourly flights between New York, Boston and Washington DC. They also serve destinations in the US Southwest and West.
One of the popular destinations on US Airways is Rio de Janeiro, Brazil from Charlotte, North Carolina. Rio de Janeiro is located on the Atlantic coast of Brazil, and is the third largest city in South America. If you are planning a trip to Rio, here are a few attractions you don't want to miss.
Rio is the centre of culture in Brazil, and is a city that was built between the 16th and 19th century, with many modern building erected in the 20th century. This blend of old and new reflects the attitudes of this ever-changing and dynamic city. Think bossa nova, think samba, and think beaches like Ipanema. Rio also has many museums and libraries, reflecting its place as a centre of learning and knowledge in the country. It is also the most-visited city in South America, with over 2 million visitors every year. There are many hotels and over 80 kilometers of beach, along with two mountains within sight, Corcovado and Sugarloaf Mountains.
The 2014 World Cup Soccer games will be held in Rio de Janeiro, as will the Summer Olympic Games in 2016. Rio is on its way back up, after a decade of being overshadowed by other Brazilian cities. There is new excitement in the air about civic revival and fresh outlook. As a visitor, you will be welcomed and enchanted by the culture, dance, cuisine and generally sunny outlook of the residents. They are accustomed to pleasing tourists, and are proud of their city.
When you begin planning a trip to Rio de Janeiro, or any other destination, a good place to start is an online discount travel site. There you will be able to compare many airlines for fares, schedules, dates and have a good overview of who flies there, and what the price range is. You will also be design a trip that suits your pocket book and time frame.
