Aventura is not for me. It is a fast growing city, but as such, it has the problems that come with living in a city. The population is diverse and many people are foreign. This is not a bad thing in itself since it is great to meet new people and experience other cultures, but there is a lack of understanding of safety laws and a police force that fails to enforce any laws. Driving here is quite stressful and dangerous. It is not uncommon to see signals ignored or turns made across multiple lanes of highway. Pedestrians and bicyclist also have no regard for common sense. It is quite frightening how often people are injured.
As somebody who came from a small community, I am used to people regarding others - showing courtesy. I do not find it here in South Florida. People in Aventura, and South Florida in general, are just rude, self-absorbed, and arrogant. Thankfully I am leaving soon and will never have to come back.
