A red foam hand with a white #1 outlined in black sitting next to a leather American football that are both sitting on a white yard line on the stadium grassCongratulations to our very own Tampa Bay Buccaneers on winning the Super Bowl! We knew the Bucs would win because the winning spirit is everywhere here. The Tampa Bay Lightning won the Stanley Cup in 2004 and 2020. Not to be outdone, our Tampa Bay Rays won 92 games and the Wild Card Game to advance to the Division Series and World Series! Plus, in 2020, they had the best record in the AL. Not too shabby!

Whether you’re thinking of relocating here, moving here, or already here, living at North River Ranch lets you make the most of this fantastic setting in every way.

Our area has just the right combination of city life, cosmopolitan flair, arts and culture, and the very best in leisure and relaxation. Miles and miles of pristine beaches, warm Gulf of Mexico waters, and sunny weather to soak up at Siesta Key BeachAnna Maria Island, and so many more. When the rest of the country is battling snow and ice in February, the average temperature in Bradenton, Florida in February is a balmy 74.

Parrish, near Bradenton in North Manatee County, is quintessential Florida. The local hometown atmosphere is tranquil and relaxed. It combines timeless Florida scenery with new living advantages. It’s set apart enough to hear yourself think yet close enough to work, play, and everything else. In fact, that’s why we chose Parrish for North River Ranch’s setting. It’s thriving, yet its potential growth may be why it’s been quoted as the “New Center of the Universe.” New homes at North River Ranch are attractively priced. You just get more bang for your buck here with beautiful, well-designed, new homes at a good value.

Another claim to fame is that Manatee County has one of the biggest concentrations of top-ranked schools in Florida. The University of South Florida also gets an A grade. It’s one of the top universities in the country for criminal justice, public health, and information technology.

Another convenience is only being a short drive from Tampa International Airport (named best airport for its size in North America), and Sarasota-Bradenton Airport. Traveling was never so fast and easy.
