Furthermore, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Riviera Blvd / Paradise Rd neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year.
