There’s more to Rio than epic views. To experience the city like a local, hit the streets. Grab a suco (fruit juice) from your choice of juice bars then pop into a restaurant to cheer during a football game and down a few glasses of chope, Rio’s light draft beer. Take a walking tour of the city’s favelas, or shanty towns, with a Rio-based group like Favela Adventures. For dinner, follow the locals to Bar Do Mineiro in the bohemian Santa Teresa neighborhood. Don't worry about trying to translate the menu; just close your eyes and point. After dinner, grab a street-side table at the Bar Veloso boteco in Leblon for more chope and people-watching.
