Mall of America®, located in Bloomington, Minnesota, is the nation’s largest retail and entertainment complex, attracting more than 40million visitors annually, making it the most visited tourist site in the U.S.
The 2.5 million square foot destination is home to 520 world-class shops offering thousands of designer brands and no sales tax on clothing or shoes. Families can enjoy hours of activities and excitement at Nickelodeon Universe®, the nation’s largest indoor family theme park; Dutchman’s Deck four story ropes course and the nation’s longest indoor zip line; SEA LIFE Minnesota’s 1.3 million gallon walk-through aquarium; Mirror Maze; Moose Mountain Adventure Golf; LEGO® Imagination Center; A.C.E.S. Flight Simulation; and the 60,000 square foot Crayola Experience (opening in the summer of 2016).
Some 50 restaurants cater to virtually any eating whim, ranging from elegant dining to fun family eateries to grab-and-go quick eats, including the newly opened Hard Rock which offers live music on weekend evenings. Additionally, the Mall hosts hundreds of events each year, free to all guests, including celebrity appearances, concerts and charitable activities.
The 500-room Radisson Blu is attached to the Mall by a climate-controlled skyway, allowing guests to shop, refresh, revel and retire without stepping foot outdoors.
In fall 2015, MOA will open a major expansion, featuring a 342-room J.W. Marriott, up to 50 new and unique retail stores and a food market.
The Mall is only 10-12 minutes by taxi or 13 minutes by train from Minneapolis-St Paul International Airport, allowing for visits during layovers of three hours or longer.
Having revolutionized the shopping experience by combining retail and entertainment, Mall of America has become the most visited tourist destination in the U.S. and earned world renowned name recognition.
