Mall of America, Bloomington
(4.2/5 based on 3,800+ reviews on the web)
Mall of America attracts over 40 million shoppers each year, the most of any mall in the world. The largest indoor shopping complex in the country, the mall houses an indoor theme park, aquarium, wedding chapel, and a miniature golf course in addition to the usual stores, movie theaters, and restaurants. Many visitors follow the shopping experience with a ride on one of the mall's 24 roller coasters, but you can also explore the aquarium's family-friendly exhibits. The mall is a ten-minute car ride from the airport, though you can easily reach it by the light rail network from almost anywhere else in the greater Minneapolis area. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Mall of America and many more Bloomington attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Bloomington vacation builder.

  • Glad I decided to go! Oh my gosh it is not the same mall I remember. Completely changed. Wow! There is a Tim Hortons coming! I'm a die-hard fan of my double double from Timmy's. This means I will need...  more »
  • The mall is very easy to get to from downtown minneapolis by train, it is abslutely huge,. But it is very hard to find any stores (apart from the big department stores). A fold out map would have been...  more »
  • Do you like shopping? Got spare time? So this is another activity that if you get a chance it's worth. Since you have self-control, because the multitude of shops can leave you with empty pockets.

  • I'm not usually a fan of malls, but I was admittedly very impressed by Mall of America! There was more than enough to keep me busy for a few evenings, and that's just between the small pool of shops that caught my eye and a few must-visit restaurants, but I didn't come anywhere close to checking out everything. The mall was very clean and parking/light rail transportation were both surprisingly stress-free and efficient. The whole middle of the mall is a huge amusement park and the basement is an aquarium, so it would probably be a fun destination for families, as well.
  • Entertainment central for my kiddo's! You couldn't possibly run out of things to do. A nice break on bad weather days. The prices at Nickelodeon are manageable, Underwater World not so much. We were extremely happy about the expansion in the food court, the kids could and would eat while watching the planes either take off or land. Great addition.
  • Best place to shop in the state you can spend an entire day here and still not see everything there is to see and do. Great places to eat every store you can imagine, great attractions from nickelodeon universe to the comedy club and theater upstairs. I love coming here all the time.
  • I never managed to make it through the entire mall, there is so much to see! It was very clean and all the washrooms I used were well maintained. There was ample parking and all signage was clearly marked. In other words I didn't get lost! So many choices for eateries and lots to do and see! I think my favourite part was the Amusement Park. The roller-coasters are a lot of fun. If I get the chance, I will DEFINITELY go back and explore the parts I wasn't able to get too on my first and second visit. WEAR COMFORTABLE WALKING SHOES! ;)
  • I traveled here for the first time. Arrived around 11am on a Sunday. Traffic was as normal as I'm used to and getting a parking spot was much easier and faster than most of my local malls. There was great variety, clean and overall very fun. Fun experience. Next time, I might try the rides.
