Shopping near Fort Lauderdale Airport

Hello we will arrive at Miami International Airport and rent a car to go to Fort Lauderdale Airport...

We have some hours before the flight that takes off from FL airport.

Can you tell me which shopping is near this airport? How is Oakwood Plaza North? or there is another better?

Thanks.

Having a car opens up several opportunities to you. Is there a specific kind of shopping you're after?

There is nothing very high end at Oakwood- K Mart, Old Navy, Big Lots, and I think Marshalls and TJ Maxx- no big name department stores etc- so as Objets says it depends on what you are looking for... Sawgrass Outlet Mall with 400+ shops is just a bit further west and north of the Airport- it takes a long time to get around to all the stores there but if you have some specific purchases in mind , perhaps we could suggest a few specific shops there that are near one another..

Oakwood Plaza is 3 miles ( a 6 min drive ) from FLL while Sawgrass Outlets is 16 miles, 25 minutes from it .

If you're traveling from MIA to FLL and planning on taking the FL-Turnpike, you will drive right past the Dolphin Mall. Very easy access from 836 as you head west to the turnpike. When done there, get back in your car, and just head north on the turnpike to 595 East.

You'll also pass by Aventura Mall which is not too far from I-95 which has a lot of the usual high end retailers as well as some more budget-friendly ones. You can find a directory of the stores there here: aventuramall.com/directory/all-stores.html

Just a note - Dolphin Mall has lots of Outlet stores, Aventura Mall is beautiful but also more pricey than Dolphin Mall.
