Less than a half hour from Ft. Lauderdale, this shopping mecca is a destination in itself. Aventura Mall is anchored by no fewer than six department stores, including Bloomingdale's, Nordstrom and Macy's. There's also a substantial lineup of more than 300 chic stores, such as Louis Vuitton, Cartier, Fendi and Burberry. Once you're ready for lunch, choose from nearly a dozen restaurants, like the Cheesecake Factory, Grand Lux Cafe and the Grill on the Alley. Need to rest your feet?
