Sawgrass Mills is always a popular destination, its about an hours drive from Ocean Dr.

Dolphin Mall is west of the city.

Aventura Mall is a bit upscale

and then there's the Lincoln Road Mall area on South Beach itself.

Thanks for that. I see you're from Fort Lauderdale, is that worth a visit?

Honestly the whole " worth it" questions confuse me. What are you looking to buy ? Can you find at a closer mall ? My daughter loves Sawgrass Mills, I prefer the Dolphin Mall, but Im biased as Dolphin Mall has my favorite restaurant and store.

Sorry I meant is Fort Lauderdale a nice place (worth) to visit? We'll probably do the two Malls you mentioned as we are in Florida for 16 days visiting Siesta Key & Orlando so we won't be short of choices for shopping

Depends what you're looking for! I think Lincoln Road is a must, because of the shopping, eating, and atmosphere, no matter what. Aventura has EVERYTHING if you're really looking to splurge on shopping (it's huge and has all the names and brands). Locally, I visit Dadeland Mall, but it's not as eventful as the other two.
