Aventura

Aventura, Florida is located in North Miami Beach in Miami-Dade County, approximately 16 miles north of Miami's center. Nearby communities include Pembroke Pines, Hollywood and Golden Glades. Known as the "City of Excellence," Aventura has become one of the most exclusive communities in Southern Florida, and it's easy to see why.

Aventura was designed as a planned suburban community in the late 1970's. The city gets its name from the Spanish word for "adventure," thanks to a comment made by a developer working on a new condominium project who remarked, "What an adventure this is going to be!" In the early 1980's the community began to take shape as the condominium developments continued and luxury housing became available. The Aventura Mall, built during this time, served to increase interest in the area. The Aventura Mall is still one of the area's top attractions thanks to its 2.4 million square feet of shopping space, the fifth largest in the U.S., filled with internationally popular stores and boutiques. Aventura is served by the Miami-Dade County school system. The Aventura City of Excellence charter school was opened in 2003 and quickly rose to national prominence as being one of the best schools in the region. 

With its location on the Intracoastal Waterway, Aventura is ideally situated between two airports and two of the largest ports in Florida. The Aventura community center is located within a 2.8-acre park and offers residents a gym, meeting rooms and a computer lab. The Turnberry Golf Course sits within Country Club Drive Circle, a multimillion dollar paved promenade overlooking lakes, luxury high rise towers, yachts and the Atlantic Ocean. Aventura is home to the luxury resort Turnberry Isle, and the communities of Golden Beach and Sunny Isles Beach are nearby. Restaurant choices are many within the city, from fine dining to family restaurants and fast food. There are also several other malls and shopping centers within the city limits.
