I like the accessibility of my town but I would love to see crime decrease. Riviera Beach gets a bad reputation because of crime, but honestly, the crime is centered in some areas. The cultural and socioeconomic diversity is very prominent. I went to school in the town so I know firsthand what they're like. They offer good educational opportunities, but there are a lot of distractions.

This is incorrect, Riviera Beach is NOT a suburb of Miami. Riviera beach is located in PB county in 10 minutes from West Palm Beach and it is not a good area except for the best elementary school in the Coast which is Suncoast
Very beautiful city; there is always something to do as far as going to the beach, pool, soaking up some sun. Its a prime city for someone who enjoys the beach life.
