The Mall of America is located off I-494 and Highway 77, about 15 minutes from the Sheraton.

Because the mall is four stories tall, there are humongous open spaces inside, for the Nickelodeon Universe theme park, Lego land, Underwater Adventures®, and unbelievable shopping. There is at least one of every single kind of mall-store you have ever seen, and a bunch of other ones that are too niche to be in your hometown's ordinary mall.

Underwater Adventures®, with 5,000 sea creatures including sea turtles, sharks, stingrays, seahorses, an octopus, pufferfish, and crabs. Also see why Discovery Channel calls Underwater Adventures® Aquarium, under the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota, the World's Best Shark Encounter!
