  • We love to come to Rio for a quick dinner or lunch (Nandos/ Bread Corner) or nicer meal- copper Canyon/ Uncle Julio's outside - inside Uncle Julio's is way too loud for us) When the kids were smaller ...  more »

  • Great place for family. There are many shops, movie theater, playground, big lake with lots of geeses and ducks. Kids love to feed them. You can also rent a boat to explore the lake. It also has great restaurants and more. BTW, if you play Pokemon go, this place has many rare Pokemon s you can catch.
  • We stay at the Courtyard Marriott here several times a year. I like that there is so many dining options here as well as a Target. The boardwalk is nice to walk down in the evening as well. Parking usually isn't too bad either.
  • Río Washingtonian Center is an impressive development with multiple distinct parts. The center around the lake was built in the 90's with a movie theater and restaurants anchoring the facility. They have had at different times, a major arcade and mini-golf and a gym as the upstairs tenants. The second area developed off the lake includes Dick's Sporting Goods, a book store and various stores and restaurants. The lake had a carousel and train ride added, as well as a work out route with signage around the paths.
  • RIO is a fun place to go see a movie. I love walking around the pond before a show. Great theater!
  • Always clean. Rarely occurrence of loud or rude behavior. No thugs(so far). Great selection of places to eat and things to do. Plenty of parking at no cost.😁
