Located just 15 minutes from downtown Minneapolis is the Mecca for all shopaholics: The Mall of America. The largest shopping centre in the United States is home to 520 shops and more than 50 restaurants. Even those who are not that fond of shopping will have a great time here; in addition to a shopping centre, The Mall of America also includes an amusement park and many other attractions.
It takes a while to walk around an entire floor of the shopping centre: the distance is more than half a mile. To give you an idea of the size of the mall, it can accommodate 7 football stadiums or 32 Boeing 747s. However, don’t expect to see women browsing the stores of The Mall of America with whining children or bored husbands in tow. Children will be happy to amuse themselves for hours at the Nickelodeon Universe theme park, Legoland or the Sea Life Minnesota Aquarium. And men who are tired of shopping can escape to the A.C.E.S. Flight Simulation Center.
