What makes Rio Vista's homes for sale appealing? The tranquil, tree-lined streets of Rio Vista feature the unique architecture of historic homes and sprawling waterfront estates with direct ocean access. Rio Vista's real estate is comprised of homes that can either be waterfront or inland, but are mostly found along wide and deep canals, perfect for yacht dockage. Featuring some of the most luxurious real estate offerings in the area, Rio Vista offers homes for sale of various styles from historic to new construction to unique architectural styles and range in price from around $1,000,000 to over $10,000,000 with an average listing price of $3,181,565.
Born in the era of prosperity following World War I, Rio Vista was transformed and maintains its identity as a resort town. The naturally stunning waterways that make up Rio Vista Florida real estate make boating and yachting a large part of the culture and an important way residents and visitors spend their time. Leisurely pursuits include watersports, fishing, spending time relaxing on the water, and enjoying the grandeur of the waterfront estates that make up Rio Vista and the surrounding areas. The Fort Lauderdale lifestyle is truly one that is hard to find fault with.
Hotels and Resorts
As a small, mostly residential area, Rio Vista does not offer many hotel options, however there are plenty of upscale accommodations in Fort Lauderdale and surrounding communities that are easily accessible from Rio Vista. This area does have a high rental market, making it the ideal place to spend your winter or even a year away from your home base.
Located just south of Las Olas Boulevard, Rio Vista is in close proximity to a huge number of fine dining and evening entertainment options in an open air environment.
