Two of Miami’s most popular shopping destinations are located near Acqualina Resort & Spa: Bal Harbour Shops, where the newest designer stores include Gucci, James Perse, Ralph Lauren and Van Cleef & Arpels. The popular shopping outpost is also fast becoming known as a foodie spot with restaurants such as Makoto opening up.
Aventura Mall, a mall in the traditional American sense and home to familiar departments stores including Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s, Macy’s, JCPenney and Sears, as well as popular retailers Abercrombie & Fitch, J.Crew, Banana Republic and Gap. Down in South Beach, the main shopping (and people-watching) drag is Lincoln Road, where stores are open late and the sartorial parade never ends. Don’t hesitate to ask the concierge at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel how to get to any and all of the retail options, or to ask which place best suits the kind of shopping you’re looking to do.
