Rio Theater – a true Vacation Fantasyland
Part of the reason Monte Rio is considered a “Vacation Wonderland” is it’s durable and affordable Rio Theater. Its long and impressive history has included live performances by show stoppers like Richie Havens and benefits such as the Pirate Radio Celebration for worthy all-volunteer non-profits, such as KGGV 95.1 FM and KOWS 107.3FM.
