Tampa Neighborhood Guide: Living in Riverview

Affordable, tranquil and only a few miles southeast of downtown Tampa, living in Riverview puts you in the urban core without removing you from the beauty of natural Florida along the Alafia River. This community of over 70,000 people is one of the fastest growing in the Tampa Bay area — and for good reason.

Living in Riverview provides an affordable and safe neighborhood for those seeking more square footage for their money. With palm tree-lined subdivisions and spacious planned communities, Riverview offers plenty of options for home buyers. Although the neighborhood is among the top five zip codes for overall home sales in 2017, there is still a lot of inventory on the market. Many of these options are newer constructions and larger family homes with yards.

While many workers commute into Tampa, there are plenty of job opportunities in the immediate area thanks in part to the opening of Riverview’s 360,000 square foot St. Joseph’s Hospital in 2015 and the many newly constructed restaurants and shopping centers. For families, there’s also the large Hillsborough County School District, which includes 250 schools.

The Lifestyle

Riverview’s explosive growth has been fueled by young families seeking affordable homes and good schools, as well as retirees looking for Florida sunshine and a comfortable lifestlye. People who want to get outdoors will find plenty of opportunities to enjoy nature here, from hiking in the the 477 acre Bell Creek Nature Preserve to kayaking on the Alafia River.

Living in Riverview means there’s no longer a need to drive into Tampa for good dining and entertainment. Two massive multiplex theaters with plush recliners, giant screens and in-theater dining and cocktails opened in Riverview in 2016. The Tampa Bay area’s first Dave and Buster’s is the latest addition to a large entertainment complex in nearby Brandon that includes a Topgolf luxury indoor driving range and iFly indoor skydiving.

Getting Around Town

Riverview is serviced by Interstate 75, making it easily accessible to downtown, central Tampa, historic Ybor City and the Port of Tampa via the Selmon Expressway. The rapid population increase has led to some heavy traffic, especially on Riverview’s main artery, the seven lane U.S. Highway 301.

This growth has also inspired the addition of two new Publix supermarkets, at Rivercrest Commons and Winthrop Town Centre, since 2016. In an effort to combat school overcrowding, the neighborhood has also opened several new public and charter schools.
