Base USA

In addition to fancy, monochromatic threads, BASE is also known for its funky soundtrack (its CD collection is for sale, of course), coffee table books, candles and even Japanese anime.

Aventura Mall

Miami’s best all-rounder, Aventura Mall boasts all the biggies: Bloomingdale’s, Macy’s and Nordstrom. It also has boutique locations for 7 For All Mankind, Burberry, Calvin Klein, Pucci and Ted Baker. In addition, there’s a 24-screen cineplex and popular restaurants such as the Cheesecake Factory and Johnny Rockets. It’s easy to get to from South Beach, as several buses terminate here—it’s just a hell of a long ride. And as a taxi can cost as much as $50 each way, it’s worth the price of a one-day car rental to stock up.

Robert is Here

A throwback to Florida’s fruit stands of old, Robert is Here started in 1959 when the shop’s namesake, then six, began selling his family’s cucumbers from a roadside table. It has since grown into an emporium of exotic fruit and vegetables—and a huge tourist attraction. Back in the day, all the produce was grown locally, and there are still workers toiling in the fields out back. But much of this stuff is now imported, which mars its authenticity. Still, the farmland setting is lovely.
