American jokes ain't funny – I worked for a major airline, some years back. We trained for 10 weeks. Six weeks into training we were given flight privileges allowing us to travel anywhere in the world. I looked at Russia, Africa and South America. The only other trainee I respected had eyes set on Northern Europe.
Approximately 12 of the remaining 24 students had no plans beyond going as a group to The Price is Right. 10 others could imagine nothing greater than The Mall of America. How utterly pathetic. The Mall of America is an even more vile example of consumerism than the corporatization of Times Square.
What a shame it's in an otherwise cool State like Minnesota.
It suprises me that people would actually bash the MOA (the cool way to say Mall Of America) for being "crowded." I live about 20 min. away from MOA and I have only experienced a large crowd during the Christmas season. Even then the Capacity that the MOA can hold is amazing.
As for the extra number of stores. I apprecitate that there are "extra" number of stores. Or else it would be a pain in rear to walk miles on end from store to store. Also, the doubles of stores are limited.
**If ever in the state, come and visit the LARGEST mall in America. (and in the future possibly the largest in the world. They plan on adding on, including a Waterpark.
Also, even if you swing through the Airport, there is a lightrail that can bring you to the MOA!
No Point To This Mall – After the thrill of being in the largest shopping mall in America wears off (and it wears off quickly- for me it wore off about 10 years ago), this mall is a hassle. It's exhausting trying to walk all over this mall to the different stores you want to go to. There's nothing special or unique about the stores. It's crowded. There's no point. If you want a regular mall experience in a more managable environment, try Southdale, right down the road on 494. If you want to visit some popular shopping areas of the twin cities that have a little more character and charm, try uptown Minneapolis or Grand Avenue in St. Paul. However, if you like big and plastic, then perhpas the Big Mall is the place for you. And I suppose everyone should go once, just to say they've been. But don't say I didn't warn you.
Great mall to pass the time between flights – I visisted the Mall of Americas a few years ago on a stop-over coming back from a holiday. I had 6 hours in Minneapolis and thought why not go to the mall. The airport has direct shuttles to the mall. It took only a few minutes to get there so parking wasn't a problem. The mall has everything you could want: good anchor stores and everything inbetween. However, I guess I was expecting more as I was able to see and do it all in a matter of a few hours. I thought it might be as good as the West Edmonton Mall but it's not. It seems a lot smaller. Maybe that's because it's on several floors and not as spread out. West Ed has way more to offer but MOA is certainly a good choice. It wasn't very busy when I was there which was really nice (weekday)
Well, it's a Big Mall... – Mall of American is Big. Really Big. It's often crowded, it's always noisy, and it doesn't have anything other malls don't. It just has MORE of them. Every mall in the country can probably say they have a Victoria's Secret; MOA has several. Likewise Bath and Body Works, Limited, Coffee Shops, and shops selling tacky memorabilia. Looking for unique stores, with stuff you won't find anywhere else? Don't look here; with the exception of the cheese shop there aren't any. There were some when it opened, but they've all gone away to be replaced with MOA gift shops and places selling overpriced ball caps.
Don't go with kids. If it's crowded you won't be able to get anywhere with the stroller. If you don't have a stroller, they'll get tired of walking before you're halfway around.
Overpriced, oversized, overrated.
jersey mall rat loves it – i loved it. there were so many shops and so much to see. good shops too. i especially loved this t-shirt shirt shop. i got a very cool oscar the grouch t-shirt. the rides are well-worth a whirl too. they seem thrilling enough for thrill seekers. if you are planning on going to the mall, i would recommend going early because there is so much to see. also, the great thing about minnesota-no sales tax!
Each time we drift home. – I grew up in Minneapolis... or the northern suburb of Columbia Heights. We drift home from North Carolina almost every year to visit family still living in the area and never fail to drive over the the BIG Mall of America to spend a couple of hours just hanging out and looking at stuff. GREAT place. LOTS of GREAT shops.
Mall of America – What else can you say but a really big mall with lots to do with the whole family. Its a great place to visit in itself, an all day adventure if you choose.
I bought my prom dress at Mall of America.....We went on a school trip before April and some friends and I went to Debs and bought my prom dress for 39.99.We were from Iowa and then we went back to Iowa and at the Coral Ridge Mall I seen the same dress for 169.99 I was so impressed about the whole thing.I want to come back next year and get my prom dress again. Thanks for having such a good mall
only for tourist – If your from out of sate by all means vist the largest mall in the the United States but its only a once in while vist. I mean when you live 15 mintues away from it and been there like every week it gets old. Personnaly I find it overrated and kind of expensive. Its kind of like living next door to six flags. Its like any other mall beside all the extras like camp snoopy, and the theater, and whatever. I do have to give it that though it is a muti task kind of place and does save time.
