Fort Lauderdale - Aventura Mall - Miami ?

Hi,

I will be in Florida for 9 nights in June and won't have a car. I've booked 6 nights in Fort Lauderdale and 2 nights in Miami, with a night to spare in between. I was thinking of staying at a hotel near Aventura Mall and making the most of the Florida shopping experience :)

I'm just wondering if it's practical to travel from Fort Lauderdale (downtown) to Aventura Mall and onward to Miami (downtown) the following day on public transport with a bulky suitcase?

Or would it be better to stay an extra night in Miami and travel to/from Aventura Mall as a day trip?

Any advice would be welcome.

Thanks!

Well, the only bus I know of to Aventura is The Route #1 which basically goes down federal Highway ( UA !) travels into the FLL Airport to pick up passengers( I believe the stop is at the Rental Car Center in the center of the terminals) before continuing down US !. I'll post a ink to the route map and schedule. I don't know that it is very convenient- or if there is any other bus route I don't know of but that is all that comes to mind.

This is the weekday schedule/map for Rt. 1- the weekend schedule would be slightly different ( less frequent)

On weekdays only and with a schedule limited to commuter times ( early am and later afternoon) , a quicker version the Rt 1 called Breeze is offered but less places to pick it up as it makes few stops .

Thanks for you feedback Lulutoo!

It looks like the best option may be to get a shuttle (or tri-rail) to Miami and take a day trip to Aventura Mall from there.

Have a good weekend :)
