Rio Vista is an affluent neighborhood situated next to Downtown Fort Lauderdale. The name literally means River View in Spanish and it features tree lined streets and a mix of modern and old style architecture. It has roughly 1,000 homes in the area in a wide range of prices. Many of the waterfront homes are located on Isles with ready access to deep water.
Rio Vista’s location is highly desirable with its deep water canals, no fixed bridges, direct ocean access and its proximity to Downtown Fort Lauderdale. Spanish style architecture is prominent in the larger homes that run in the millions of dollars. Homes are also in colonial architectural style. Waterfront homes are more aptly described as estates. Rio Vista is also very close to Las Olas Boulevard which is accessible by boat as well as car, and offers outdoor dining, boutique browsing, and gallerie perusing. The Fort Lauderdale International Airport is under 15 minutes away as is interstate 95 which connects you to the rest of South Florida.
