Bloomington’s #1 attraction by far is Mall of America, the largest retail and entertainment center in the United States, welcoming over 40 million visitors annually. This shopping mecca boasts 2.5 million square feet of retail space, over 520 stores, 50 plus restaurants and countless entertainment options that range from Nickelodeon Universe® amusement park to a 14-screen cinema. And, with tax free shopping on clothing and shoes, there is no better place to see what the trends are and shop away.

With a beautiful location on the banks of the Minnesota River, the city of Bloomington has much to offer travelers. Not only is it home to the world-famous Mall of America, but this city of 85,000 also houses the stunning Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge, an extensive system of hiking and biking trails and much more. Twin Cities visitors also enjoy Bloomington’s many travel conveniences, including its central location, proximity to the airport, and easy freeway access to Interstates 35W and 494. In addition, Bloomington offers free parking, free hotel shuttles to the airport and Mall of America, and the Blue Line Light Rail, which runs from MOA to Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport and downtown Minneapolis.
