Bloomington, Minnesota is located just minutes from Minneapolis, St. Paul and the Minneapolis/St. Paul international airport.   In the heart of Bloomington, is the Mall of America, the largest retail and entertainment complex in the USA. The Mall of America boasts the department stores of Sears, Nordstrom and Macys in addition to over 500 other stores. Best of all – there is no tax on clothing and shoes, so bargains are there to be found! In the middle of the complex is fun-filled Nickelodeon Universe, a seven acre amusement park complete with rollercoasters, Nickelodeon characters and other entertainment. Also in the mall is SEA LIFE Minnesota, where visitors can see stingrays, turtles and walk amongst the sharks in an underground tunnel. With over 40 million visitors a year, The Mall of America is clearly worth a visit!   Venture outside of the Mall and visitors will be met with a wealth of other attractions. The Water park of America, the USA’s largest indoor water park, promises a toasty 83°F to enjoy the slides, surf machines arcades and much more! View deer, bald eagles, turtles and other wildlife at the Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge, a federally managed nature reserve. For a more educational experience, walk under an 82 ft dinosaur or touch a tornado at the Science Museum of Minnesota.
