The Mall of America is a must see for visitors to the Twin Cities, but it is WAY too big and confusing for serious shopping. There is so much to do inside--the roller coasters (what an experience!), the entertainment on stages, movies, tons of restaurants, the Lego place, and LOTS of people watching. There are many, many, many stores, but it is really just too big to carry purchases, find the store you are interested in, etc. But, definitely don't miss it!
