Aventura has a vibrant, multi-demographic community that enjoys some of South Florida’s best condominium residences. World-class shopping, dining and entertainment at Aventura Mall attract millions of visitors every year to the area. Located between Downtown Miami and Fort Lauderdale, Aventura has access to the two areas’ international airports and seaports. The waterfront setting for the 2.8-acre Community/Recreation Center includes a computer lab, exercise and aerobic rooms, a gym, and meeting rooms within the 25,000 square foot facility. As a family-friendly area, Aventura opened the first municipal-run charter school in Miami-Dade County, the Aventura City of Excellence School, in 2003 with K-8 education.
