60 E Broadway, Bloomington, MN 55425
Operating Season: Year ‘Round (closed Easter, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day)
Opened in 1992, the Mall of America is the second largest shopping mall in the United States with over 500 stores, 50 restaurants and the largest indoor theme park – Nickelodeon Universe®. Personally, I thought the Mall of America was just a really big mall. However, my family members LOVE to shop so they were in Shopping Mall Heaven. Plus, there’s no sales tax!
In addition to stores, restaurants and theme parks, the Mall of America also includes an aquarium, movie theater, a comedy club, a flight simulator center, a mirror maze and tons of other attractions. Your family reunion group will have plenty to keep them occupied for several hours. Besides shopping, the attractions do have an additional cost attached to them. You can secure a group rate by simply contacting them directly for pricing information.
There are several hotels surrounding the Mall. My family stayed at the Minneapolis Airport Marriott which was located right across the street and they provided a free shuttle back and forth.
