Gumbo's Pic of the Day, Dec. 26, 2013: Mall of America, Bloomington, Minnesota




The Mall of America, Minneapolis, Minnesota.  As you can see in this photo, the Mall of America (which opened in 1992) has something for everybody.  Activities include (just to mention a few) an amusement park (Nickleodeon Universe) which offers a wide variety of rides, a very cool Lego store, plenty of restaurants to satisfy any craving, a large movie theater, a mini golf course (Moose Mountain), and Sea Life Minnesota Aquarium which brings you close to over 10,000 sea creatures including turtles, sharks, rays, jellyfish, seahorses, and more.  There are three floors of retail stores where you can probably find anything your looking for.  In the United States, the Mall of America is the second largest mall in total area and the largest in total store vendors.  It is the most visited shopping mall in the world with more than 40 million visitors annually. The mall employs over 12,000 people.   The great thing I enjoy about the Mall of America is that it is indoors and temperature controlled.  So, mosquitoes or other bugs, rain or shine, freezing cold or super hot, you can have fun and be comfortable any time of the year.  If you want to just go for a walk to get some exercise and people watch, a walk around one floor of the Mall of America is roughly one mile.
