Located just south of Minneapolis, the Mall of America is the country’s largest shopping mall, but it’s not just about shopping. While there are over 500 stores, there are also countless restaurants and a wide range of attractions that aren’t usually found in malls such as a butterfly garden, an aquarium and even an indoor amusement park with over two dozen rides among a long list of other options. One of the best ways to take advantage of it is to stay nearby, and these hotels are great options for doing just that.
