The Mall of America: More Than Just Shopping

3. December 2009 by Michelle 0 Comments

Have you ever been to a mall that feels like an entire city? The Mall of America is so huge and packed with things to do that it is one of the top tourist destinations in the country and is called a city within a city.


Located in Bloomingdale, Minnesota, this massive shopping and entertainment experience has been described as overwhelming by some the 40 million visitors it receives each year. Even if you spent only 10 minutes browsing in each of its 520 stores, you would need over 86 hours to see them all! And still there is so much more to explore!


The Mall of America is not only amazing for adults, but also a favorite travel destination for kids since there is a 25 ride theme park, aquarium, dinosaur museum, and flight simulation all inside! There are also movie theaters, and many various events taking place every day. When you get hungry, you have over 20 different restaurants to choose from. And after dinner, you can frequent one of the many comedy clubs or night clubs to continue this unique entertainment experience.


This is more than a mall; it’s a complete adventure. Even happy couples have chosen the Mall of America for their special wedding day since there is chapel housed there as well. There have been over 5,000 weddings! You have to see it believe it!
