We shopped 'till we dropped at the Mall of America

We took in the first of our destinations on the Shores and Streams Itinerary. We went to the Mall of America. Although the Country Inn & Suites offers a shuttle every hour, we loaded up the stroller and walked right over there! It was an easy, 5 minute walk from our hotel.

The Mall of America is amazing - and a bit overwhelming. You can shop, see a movie, eat a meal (or a day's worth), ride a roller coaster (or a bunch of coasters), play with legos, and see sharks all under one roof.
Wait...Did she say "sharks?"

Yup...and they are swimming right over your head.
We also were able to touch starfish and giant crabs....reluctantly.

When we were done at the aquarium, we spent some time experimenting with vehicle design:

Then we walked back to the hotel and enjoyed dinner at the TGI Friday's right inside our hotel. After a quick stop in the lobby for a snack of bedtime cookies, we were ready to wind down and recharge for tomorrow's adventures. It was so nice to be able to do all this within close walking distance of our hotel.

It was a great day!

  1. I'm not a big fan of malls in general, but a mall with sharks and roller coasters and legos? That might actually be fun. :)


What's on your mind?
