What is it? Get lost at one of the largest malls in the world, in Bloomington.
Why go? Indulge in some ’90s mall nostalgia at the Mall of America. Local treasures among the 500+ stores include vintage retailer Ragstock and Minnesot-ah!, which specializes in Minnesota merch (think casserole cookbooks, loon-emblazoned tea towels). There’s an aquarium and amusement park too – the Log Chute ride features cameos by Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox.
