Rio Vista is a historic neighborhood of over 1,000 homes, situated just South of downtown Fort Lauderdale. With mature tree lined streets, sidewalks and unique architecture, you soon realize the beauty and history of Rio Vista, one of the oldest communities in Fort Lauderdale. The community boundaries are US-1 to the West, the Intracoastal Waterway to the East, the New River to the North and SE 12th Street to the South. Fort Lauderdale beach is easily accessible over 17th Street to the South or via Las Olas Blvd. through downtown Fort Lauderdale to the North. Fort Lauderdale’s International Airport is just a short drive South on US-1 making it a popular neighborhood for jet setters and air commuters from the Northeastern US. Rio Vista real estate is always desirable, especially the waterfront properties along the Intracoastal Waterway.
