  • 1. Acqua di Parma

    Brickell City Centre houses the one and only stand-alone store of this Italian fragrance and skin-care brand in the United States. But there's so much more than scents and fragrances for sample and sale in the 1,000-square-foot, marble-clad boutique; consumers can also purchase the brand's line of leather bags, travel accessories, and candles. Additionally, an in-store barbershop offers razor shaves with Acqua di Parma’s coveted men's grooming products, the Collezione Barbiere.

  • 2. Aventura Mall

    This three-story megamall offers the ultimate in South Florida retail therapy and houses many global top performers, including the most lucrative outposts of several U.S. chain stores, a supersize Nordstrom and Bloomingdale's, and 300 other shops, like a two-story flagship Louis Vuitton, Hermès, and Fendi, which together create one of the largest shopping malls in the United States. Recent additions include a Nike store (where you can customize your Nike gear), the massive Treats Food Hall, and the 93-foot Aventura Slide Tower, a huge spiraling landmark that's also a functioning, nine-story slide open to the public Monday through Saturday 11 am to 9 pm and Sunday 11 am to 8 pm. Consider it a one-stop, shop-'til-you-drop retail mecca for locals, out-of-towners, and—frequently—celebrities.

  • 6. Lincoln Road Mall

    The eight-block-long pedestrian mall between Alton Road and Washington Avenue is home to more than 100 shops, art galleries, restaurants, and cafés, as well as the renovated Colony Theatre. A see-and-be-seen theme is underscored by outdoor seating at every restaurant, where tourists and locals lounge and discuss the people (and pet) parade passing by. Due to high rents, you are more likely to see big corporate stores like J.Crew, H&M, and Victoria's Secret than original boutiques. Nevertheless, a few emporiums and stores with unique personalities remain, along with a number of top-notch restaurants, like Juvia and MILA.

    Lincoln Rd., Florida, 33139, USA

This retail sanctuary carries ready-to-wear fashions by more than 100 top designers, plus in-store exclusive shirts, candles, books, and random trendy items you might need for your South Beach experience—a kind of haute Urban Outfitters for grown-ups.
