If you are traveling to Minneapolis, MN anytime soon, either with family or by yourself, you have to check out the Mall of America. Located in Bloomington, MN, The Mall of America is located within five minutes of the airport. I have the luxury of living in Minnesota so I can visit the MOA anytime that I want to. Even if you are not into shopping, there is something that you will enjoy at the Mall.
The Mall of America is an excellent shopping mall, bringing in millions of tourists a year. It has three floors of shopping in which you can find literally anything. There are tons of specialty stores to find lots of unique items. When you need to take a rest from all of the shopping, you can go up to the fourth floor and catch a movie on one of 12+ screens. It is very cool in there as well!
If you are traveling with children, you have to check out Nickelodian Universe. Located in the center of the mall, Nick Universe is a massive indoor amusement park. It is truly a lot of fun. Formally known as Camp Snoopy, the Mall has just transformed their theme park as of March 15, 2008. Now you can ride with Spongebob, Dora, and all of your Nick Friends.
If games are more your style, you will have to check out the giant arcade located in Nick Universe. You can purchase tokens at the arcade and play all types of games. For the rides at the amusement park, you can purchase tickets or an all-day wristband. If you are planning to ride more than a couple of rides, it is really beneficial to get an all day wristband, you will save a lot of money.
You can even get married at the Mall of America in their wedding chapel. Book in advance because this is quite a site and does book up early. Other attractions you can find at The MOA would be LegoLand, Underwater Adventures, and tons more.
Once your tummy starts grumbling, you can hit one of the hundreds of restaurants. THey have everything from fast food to fine dining. It isn't cheap, but it is well worth it. If you are going to eat at a sit down restaurant, I recommend not going there during peak meal times. This will save you a big wait in line.
I highly recommend a stop at the Mall of America. It is truly a lot of fun, just don't forget the credit card!
