The city of Aventura lies midway between the two major cities in South Florida—Miami and Fort Lauderdale—making it an ideal spot if your travel plans include either city, or both. When building began here in the 1970s, one of the developers referred to the construction as being an "adventure," hence the name. There is indeed plenty of adventure to be found in and around the beautiful beaches and cities in the area. Book a stay in one of the top hotels in Aventura, and let the adventures begin!
Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport is the closest major airport to Aventura, lying 11 miles to the north, and it is reached by public bus service, taxi, or rental car. If you arrive at Miami International Airport, you'll be 20 miles south of Aventura (but transportation options remain the same). After checking in to your choice of hotels near Aventura, take some time to look around—one of the hot spots in town is the huge Aventura Mall, where you can indulge in a long session of retail therapy. There are also some lovely parks around, including Founders Park and Waterways Park.
No vacation in South Florida would be complete without spending time at the beach, and happily, there are many beaches from which to choose! You can also check out rental cars in Aventura and hit the road, since the coast is just a couple of miles from town. Where should you explore? To the north is Fort Lauderdale, which has reinvented itself as an upscale resort area; and to the south is Miami and the legendary South Beach, where the party never ends. If you're staying out late in the pubs and clubs there, book a night at one of the Miami hotels in the area so you won't have far to go.
