Situated in Hillsborough County right near the town of Brandon, Riverview is a perfect place for family-friendly living.
Riverview was founded in 1885 on the Alafia River's north shore. (The term Alafia is translated as "River of Fire" due to the phosphorus on the early riverbottom glowing at night.) Some of Riverview's settlers include the Barnes, Bourgees, Boyettes, Buzbees, Hackneys, Hartleys, Mansfields, Moodys, Scotts, Topes, Thompsons, Whitts, and the Yeomans.
Some of the best places to visit in Riverview include the Triple Creek Nature Preserve, Tampa Fishing Charter, and the Balm-Boyette Scrub Reserve.
