Aventura is a suburban city in Florida with a population of just over 37,000 people. It is located only about 20 miles north of Miami and is situated right on the water. This location makes it both a practical and beautiful place to live and rent. If you love the beach and the lifestyle that comes along with living near the ocean, but aren't a fan of the constant crowds and action of Miami, Aventura might be the place for you!
As you could expect from its location and proximity to Miami, Aventura can often be seen as Miami-Lite. Aventura features the same gorgeous beaches, same attractive skyline and same “beachy” vibe, but with much less people and tourism. This makes it a great option for people who like the weather and vibe of Miami, but can’t stand the crazy amount of tourism and pedestrians.
One place that does get a considerable amount of tourists in Aventura is the mall. The mall in Aventura is the third biggest in the country and as a result, people may flock from surrounding suburbs to shop here. The beaches can also get a tad busy, but they are nothing like the craziness that occurs down in Miami.
This size prevents many different types of neighborhoods from materializing as Aventura is 3.5 square miles. As a result, many of the real estate options will be apartments or condos throughout the city and there is not too much variety. Despite this lack of architectural diversity, there are still a lot of options that will depend on other factors such as price point, amenities, age of building, and more.
This city only underwent its initial development back in the 1970s. After a few decades of development and bringing in more residents and services, it was finally incorporated as a city in 1995. The rapid growth in the city has continued over the last few decades and it is a popular and attractive place to live now thanks to its waterfront views, many amenities and great weather.
Because of the prime location of real estate in Aventura, and the great atmosphere throughout the tight-knit community, rental prices can be quite high. In fact, the average monthly rent for an apartment here is over $2000. However, as with most communities in the area, there can be some bargains to find as well. Either way, many people feel that living in a relatively quiet, yet beautiful, place like Aventura is worth the money.
Despite the frequency of traffic jams in Aventura, driving is still by far the most common way to get around. Aventura is well connected to other suburbs, has great roads and much lower tourism and pedestrian traffic than many of the other beach communities in South Florida, but since everyone drives, congestion can occur. About 75-80% of people in Aventura drive or carpool to their job every day. The large amounts of parking available throughout this city also encourage residents to drive.
So while driving is popular, there is also a fairly well-connected public transportation system in the area too. There is a shuttle bus that is available free to residents, which is a very nice amenity. There are also other bus systems (including the Metrobus) that have various routes throughout the city as well as a commuter rail. Also, walking and biking are viable if going only a few blocks.
