Shopping? Where do I begin? I know, my daughter Michelle's favorite place to shop, world famous Aventura Mall, located only 8 minutes from Hollywood Beach. it is a shopping, dining and entertainment destination. A mini-city with state-of-the-art movie theaters including IMAX, restaurants, specialty shops, boutiques like Bebe, Guess and Banana Republic and anchor stores such as Macy's, Bloomingdales and Nordstrom. Another great place to shop is this unadvertised gem, Bal Harbour Shops, home of Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Gucci and high end shops who cater to Jennifer Lopez, P Diddy, ex-president Bill Clinton and Jennifer Aniston, just to name a few. But I warn you, bring more than one credit card!! But if it is Bargains you are searching for, then head on out to the Swap Shop in Ft. Lauderdale, only minutes from Hollywood Beach. Or shop at the Sawgrass Mills outlet mall, so large you can lose yourself there for a day of great shopping!
