Aventura vacation rentals

Your 1-stop shop for vacation perfection

What's the biggest pair of sunglasses you own? Hmm... probably still too small to blend in properly in Aventura. You're going to need to dress like one of the great and the good, because super-chic Aventura is a place to strut your stuff and shop like your life depends on it. With some of the biggest malls in the state, and dining options to match, an Aventura vacation rental puts you at the heart of the action, just 12 miles from Miami and Fort Lauderdale, minutes from Golden Beach, and within easy reach of the Everglades.

And mall-together now...

No one comes this close to the Atlantic without getting a little bit of sand between their toes, and with an Aventura vacation rental, the beach is only a short drive away. Same goes for golf courses and parks. Exercise is all very well, of course, but most folk come to Aventura to flex their credit cards. Shopping is huge, with indoor and outdoor malls to suit all tastes. And if you're the sort who believes that biggest is best, then make a beeline for the Aventura Mall. It's the largest mall in Florida, and the third largest in the U.S.

Keeping it cultural and contemporary

For those looking to get stuck into the cultural life during your Aventura vacation rental, the Aventura Arts and Cultural Center has concerts, comedy, theater, and much more. And if you still haven't got your fix, how about a trip to the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami, where they like to spice up their exhibitions from up-and-coming artists with the occasional jazz concert. For more family-friendly thrills, head to the Museum of Discovery and Science in Fort Lauderdale, with interactive exhibits, an IMAX theater, and native Florida animals including alligators, otters, and turtles.

Snowbirds of Paradise in Aventura

Aventura is a honeypot for snowbirds, that fly south each year in search of those balmy Florida winters. While folks are shivering in their parkas up north, down here in the Sunshine State they're raising a glass to the warm, mostly dry weather that lasts roughly between October and April. The flipside is the summer (May to September), which can get hot and ferociously humid at times. Fortunately, regular afternoon thunderstorms provide a bit of relief, and if the heat gets a bit much, it's good to know that in Aventura you're never far from a pool, the ocean, or an air-conditioned restaurant.

Adventuring in Aventura

Aventura is set in a fairly built-up strip of prime territory near the Atlantic Ocean, just north of Miami. While Aventura doesn't have coastline of its own, there's a sandy beach literally 5 minutes' drive away in nearby Golden Beach. Head inland, and things change pretty quickly as you get into the Everglades. This legendary, 2 million-acre region of tropical wetlands, mangroves, sawgrass marshes, pines, and hardwoods is one of the biggest draws of this part of Florida, and home to some serious wildlife celebrities. Try, crocodiles, alligators, manatees, and the incredibly rare Florida panther, for starters.
