Aventura is a planned, suburban city located in northeastern Miami-Dade County, Florida. The city name is from the Spanish word for “adventure”, and was named “Aventura” after one of the developers of the original group of condominiums in the area remarked to the others, “What an adventure this is going to be.” The name predates the well-known mall built near the condominium developments.
Just a short drive over the William H. Lehman Causeway are the famous beaches of South Florida. Aventura is also home to Turnberry Isle Miami, a Mediterranean-style retreat with a culture of authenticity, spirited service and enriching experiences. The resort is renowned for its many world-class amenities, including two championship golf courses redesigned by Raymond Floyd.
Aventura is synonymous with world-class shopping. Aventura Mall is the largest mall in the area with six department store anchors and more than 280 shops. As a residential neighborhood, Aventura has established its niche as an enclave of tropical landscaping. Water surrounds sleek high-rises and luxurious single-family homes. Twelve miles north of Miami and twelve miles south of Fort Lauderdale, Aventura is smack in the middle of metropolitan South Florida.
