Where to Indulge in Retail Therapy in Miami

Aventura Mall continues its growth; visit it and these other shopping meccas.

In 2018, the Aventura Mall went through a major expansion that continues today. After adding a three-level, 315,000 square-foot wing on the east side of the property, housing stores like Zara and Pomellato, the openings continued with John Hardy and Furla and this fall, the mall welcomes Jimmy Choo and COS.

Overwhelmed? You can’t get lost thanks to high-tech, interactive mall directories placed throughout the property. Need to refuel after all that shopping? The mall’s dining options are abundant, including CVI.CHE 105, Pubbelly Sushi, Serafina and Chef Michael Mina’s International Smoke. If you’re running errands with restless kids, have them tire out on the "Aventura Slide Tower" by Carsten Höller. It's a monumental, nearly 93-foot tubular sculpture that you can slide in.
