i stopped there when visiting the area a few years ago and was disappointed. 

yes i rode the rollercoaster but it was the same stores that are a every mall.  there was nothing unique.

Nikkimcq:  Are you just visiting the area for a bit? I live here and just wondered if you are able to go see other things, too?

Nikkimcq:  Oh, okay good! You get to see more than just the mall! I’m not a big fan, but people will come from far and wide to see it. People come here and spend their honeymoon at it! I think if it has stores you’re not used to, you will enjoy it! You can scope them out before you come. It’s BIG and you can get kinda lost, so leave a trail of breadcrumbs. Haha!

Honestly, just wander around! I live 3.5 hours away, but visit the Cities often (my sister lives there). You seriously can spend hours just walking around that place. I go to stores that I don’t have, or don’t get to often – like H&M, a bigger Sephora, Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, Pinkberry, and some shoe stores (just to name a few).

Pick a few places to eat, whether one big meal and then a few snack places. Lot sof options!!

I was just there a few weeks ago, but just went to Nordstom’s – my mom is still in search of a MOB dress and saw some online there that she wanted to check out in person. It was a quick in and out on a Saturday afternoon!

I live 40 min from Mall of America so I go there all the time!  Since it’s your first time I would reccomend walking around the whole first floor, then the second, and lastly the third.  That way you get to see everything!  The mall is shaped in big circle/square so it’s easy to walk all the way around it.  Your feet will hurt at the end of the day but then you got to see everything!  Oh and I love the mirror maze!

They had legos to play with in the middle somewhere, which I thought was cool when I was 18 (I hung out with my younger cousins).  I still think that sounds more appealing than the rest of the mall.  It was like…just a bigger, messier, busier version of my mall back home.  Which was the Fox Run Mall.  Filenes, Macy’s, JC Penny, Sears!  100 stores and more make this the place to shop!  So shop the Fox!

Me personally would skip that trap of a place.  I live in the cities and can think of a lot of other places to visit.  From the Guthrie theater to Stone Arch bridge to going up to  Taylors Falls
