Rio Vista Custom

Rio Vista

An early Florida development project of W.F. Morang and dating back to the 1920’s, Rio Vista is one of the oldest and most luxurious communities in Fort Lauderdale. Thanks to Morang and other pioneers such as Frank Stranahan, as well as the extension of the Florida East Coast Railway in 1896, Fort Lauderdale experienced a land boom that ended in a bust with the 1926 Miami Hurricane. Rio Vista and Rio Vista Isles began to recover after World War II, and now contain a nearly unparalleled assortment of luxury homes, some Art Deco’s from the 1920’s and 1940’s, others 1950’s ranches, and still others built in this new century, near-palaces built to the most exacting hurricane standards in the world.

Things to do in Rio Vista

In Rio Vista Isles – boating, of course! – weighing anchor in the Rio Alcazar, Rio Valencia, Rio Granada, Rio Carmena, and Rio Cordova, “Rio” here meaning “canal,” which canals empty into what was once known as Lake Mabel, now the Stranahan River, then into the Atlantic. The Evergreen Cemetery, founded in 1910 and the oldest cemetery in Fort Lauderdale, borders Rio Vista and is the final resting place of many of South Florida’s founding families. The Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina is in nearby Lauderdale Harbours, and East Las Olas is just a short jaunt away. Or staying closer to home, take a slow, top-down drive in a convertible through the many streets lined with palm and live oaks, and gape at the area’s architectural and geological splendor.
