Those looking to shop 'til they drop in Florida can head to Aventura Mall, located in the north Miami suburb of Aventura. It may not have the beach vibe of Fort Lauderdale's boardwalks or the over-the-top glitz of Miami's bustling downtown area, but travelers will find popular brands and luxury labels in a ritzy setting that is conducive to a good dose of retail therapy.
Luxury brands at Aventura Mall include Burberry, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Missoni and Tiffany and Co., while other popular shops include Ann Taylor, Anthropologie, Gap, H&M, Splendid and Ugg Australia.
For a break from shopping, wander over to one of the mall's restaurants, such as the Cheesecake Factory or Nordstrom Café Bistro. Other eateries include a sushi restaurant and cheese shop.
Aventura Mall is located at 19501 Biscayne Boulevard in Aventura. Its hours are Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 8 p.m. In addition to onsite self-parking, there are valet stations located around the mall. Valet can only be paid for with cash or MasterCard.
