Take a Trail
The heat of the sun and gentle breezes make being outside in Riverview a pleasure. Of course, the chance to walk around in peaceful, natural surroundings makes it all the better. Have a picnic or cookout at one of the park pavilions, or go on a run with your beloved canine companion. For more of a thrill, head to the Balm-Boyette Scrub & Triple Creek Nature Preserve. Along with the tranquil, tree-lined paths you will find trails for mountain biking. Whether you are a beginner or expert, take a map to guide your ride and lose yourself in the spectacular scenery.
Shops of Every Sort
Part of the charm of moving to any new city is to explore its independent shops and small businesses. Riverview does not disappoint on that front. There are several antique stores for you to browse and search for that ideal piece of treasure for your new home. Making your own jewelry for fun or profit is not a problem here either because there are arts and crafts stores that specialize in beads, clasps, and charms. New, high-end clothing is easily accessible, and so are vintage items, so whether you like retro chic or designer threads, you will find it here.
Places for Prayer
The Riverview area is quite diverse in its places of worship. You can easily meet neighbors and new friends and find a place to center yourself spiritually here. There are churches for nearly every denomination, from Methodist to Catholic. There are also non-denominational houses of worship for those who do not subscribe to a particular branch. The nearby city of Brandon has a synagogue. Some churches also offer day care available to parents of young children, and most worship facilities have a youth area for children’s activities while adults are in morning or evening services.
