The Mall of America is truly impressive! Parking was easy as was finding an entrance. There are maps located throughout the mall if you are looking for a specific store; there is also an app you can purchase for $1. My husband even enjoyed himself and he's not a shopper. There is something for everyone here!

I like coming to this mall Monday through Friday when it's a little less crowded. It's fun whether you want to just people watch, go shopping, or get something for dinner at one of their fun unique restaurants. They have everything here for shopping from a Best Buy to unique clothing and apparel stores to little specialty shops where you'll find it nowhere else. Plus on every side of the mall there's different places to get tasty treats there be food drinks or snacks. I'm top of that there is a bowling alley, movie theater, and arcade, aquarium, and best of all the huge park with all sorts of rides in the middle. as a warning though during the holiday season especially on Saturday and Sunday, this place can get a little crazy from walking around in the mall trying to get into the mall to find a parking spot it is a little jammed with traffic. But if you know where you're going and what you're getting it's an easy trip to make where everything is in one place.

This is a very cool place to visit. It was on the must see list for me when I knew I was coming to Minnesota. We didn't shop very much but did come across Vam Foss a mixology place *free mini shots* and we had drinks at Dick's Last Resort and dinner at Crave. It would have been better if we had more time to explore but being Christmas time the mall was decorated beautifully.

Food, Amusement Park, Shopping, Aquarium... so much to see and do! Buy a coupon booklet for around 10.00 if you are going to do some major shopping for discounts on dining, shopping and some of the attractions. You'll more than make up for the cost of the booklet. Most motels nearby offer free shuttle to and from the mall. If you're a shopaholic like me you will def get "your fix" here.

Clean, bright, and plenty to do. Parking was easy and the ramp levels are numbered, color coded, and named after states. In additional to all the stores one would expect to see at any mall, MOA has tons of specialty stores. Socks Appeal - nothing but socks! The Peeps Store (yes, the marshmallow treat). Nickelodeon Universe will keep the kids busy. We did the zip line and it was well run and a blast.
