The big draws in Rio's northern zone are Maracanã football stadium, the Feira Nordestina (Northeastern Fair) and the Quinta da Boa Vista, former residence of the Portuguese imperial family. Aside from its key sights, the Zona Norte draws few visitors. Those wanting to get off the beaten track here will find some surprises, however, including a growing eating and drinking scene in the Praça da Bandeira neighborhood.
