Short visit to Miami/Aventura

Hi There

We are planning to visit Miami/Aventura area from May 9th to May 14th - 6 nights. We are looking to be based in Aventura - to attend a family reunion. Can you pls recommend a best value for money hotel/Inn in Aventura and we plan to rent a car at Miami airport and drive down to Aventura. Any recommendation of car rentals?

Finally, what should we see in the 5 days or so we have in that area? How far is it from Cape Canaveral?

Any input would be appreciated.

Regards and thanks

You will be about 3 1/2 hours drive to Cape Canaveral. You might want to post this on the Ft. Lauderdale or Miami forums for quicker answers. You will be closer enough to the Everglades for a day trip if that interests you. The Aventura Mall is very nice and FLL also has Sawgrass Mills a huge outlet mall. If you go to Cape Canaveral consider driving part of the way along Hwy A1A which is more scenic than I-95.
