I’ll admit. When I first read the challenge this week, I knew right away what BIG thing I had visited in my recent travels.
This. The Mall of America. The second largest mall in the United States.
That’s right. Second. Isn’t that a surprise? I mean, it’s the MALL of AMERICA. You would think it would be the biggest. The greatest. The most spectacular. You would think if you could fit seven Yankee stadiums inside it, it would be. But alas…it’s not.
And I don’t really care……
Believe me, it is the biggest mall I have EVER been to. It is a marvel, and overwhelming, and really, truly AMAZING.
The incredible sights are never-ending and a Nickelodeon land of happy sits right smack in the middle. Who wouldn’t smile when Sponge Bob greats you in such a cheery way? Sponge Bob – we love YOU for who YOU are.
Can you see Sponge Bob in the far right corner now? This is the view from the third floor. There are FOUR floors. He got tiny, didn’t he?
A BIG target.
And look at this awesome place. THE LEGO STORE! And they have BIG Lego figures around it, and on top of it.
The Lego store dragon.
A world of Lego discovery.
And the biggest skateboard I have ever seen.
I spent about six hours in the mall. I walked around each floor, and only went inside a few stores, but get this. SIX HOURS – walking the floors – and I did not even get through them all. I had a floor and half left when it was time to catch the shuttle to the airport.
Actually, I am not a BIG shopper. I am not a typical girl, because shopping is NOT my thing. However, exploring is. Discovering interesting stores, and items on display. A fun park inside a HUGE mall. People watching, and just the overall WONDER of a place this big in the midst of Minnesota.
Well. It’s something. And I am glad I got a chance to go, and show it to all of you.
So, what do think of this BIG mall?
