Road 2 Rio: Sites, sounds and attractions in the city

Tourists have flocked to Rio de Janeiro's famous beaches and attractions for years.  Rio has plenty to offer, other than just the Olympics.

Copacabana Beach, 3 miles long, is often referred to as the world's most famous beach.

Tourists are just a short walk from some of the best shopping centers in Rio, as well as theaters, restaurants and nightclubs.

One of the most iconic locations to visit in Rio is the Christ the Redeemer statue, a symbol of Brazilian Christianity.

It's about 100 feet tall with a 26-foot pedestal. The arms stretch about 92 feet.

Visitors cannot go inside, but couples get married in the chapel inside the pedestal.

And then there's Carnival, one of the biggest parties on earth.

Carnival is an annual festival held in February, leading up to Lent.

The entire city comes to a standstill.

There are marching bands, parades and plenty of dancing.

Visitors can also check out Sugarloaf Mountain, a peak about 1,300 feet above the harbor.

There's even a cable car that takes you up.
