Riverview hosts several popular community events throughout the year. These include the Spring Jubilee, annual Hog Roast and Silent Auction, Boat Parade, and golf tournaments. The Spring Jubilee is by far the most extravagant; the four-day event features rides, food, fireworks, classic car show and a 5K run.
Outside of Riverview, the greater Tampa area offers a wealth of attractions and sites to see. The Little Manatee River State Park is within 15 miles; the site is a large recreational facility used for camping, hiking, horseback riding, fishing and canoeing. Cracker Country, Tampa Bay History Center and Ybor City State Museum are nearby sites to see for history enthusiasts. Cracker Country is a replicated village of the late-Victorian era, complete with character actors and a church, school and country store. Ybor City was once the cigar capital of the world, founded to provide better working conditions for cigar factory workers. Today, the museum is dedicated to educating visitors about the unique multicultural atmosphere once present in Ybor.
Riverview has a semi-tropical climate, similar to many Florida communities. Rain falls about 110 days each year, and total precipitation is just less than 50 inches. The sun can be seen shining on 250 days out of every year, and year-round temperatures only vary between the low 50s and the low 90s.
