Riva Reviews

I have been around the Riva area for 18 years. I have lived in Riva for 4 years. Love the community and the atmosphere. Within 10-15 minutes from Annapolis and 5 minutes from Edgewater and Davidsonville.

Very wealthy, well located community. 5 minutes from Annapolis, but is safe and moderately low amounts of traffic.
I love where I live.
