A major part of the present city of Aventura was initially swampland called Biscayne Gardens. It was developed through the 1970s and 80s, by the Oxford Development Company. The city was planned as a high-rise residential area. Interestingly, the name Aventura came from the name of one of the initial condominium development companies that started work in the area. Aventura was incorporated as a city in 1995.
Aventura is a famous shopping destination because it has some excellent and unique shopping areas. Loehmann's Fashion Island has a distinctive collection of fashion boutiques, home furnishings, and gift items. One can also find waterfront shops at the Waterways. The city also presents wonderful dining opportunities ranging from gourmet restaurants to casual cafes and they offer a wide variety of local, as well as international cuisines.
In recent years, the City of Aventura has adopted several initiatives aimed at reinforcing a strong sense of community. With the building of its first Charter School in 2003, a state of the art Community Recreation Center, Founders Park & Waterways Park Expansion, and the Aventura Arts & Cultural Center, the City continues to grow, progress and build a strong sense of community.
