Mall of America

Any hunt for Americana in Minnesota deserves a visit to Mall of America in Bloomington, a suburb of the Minneapolis / St. Paul metropolitan area. I will concede that it's essentially just an overgrown mall, but what says more about America than its shopping mall culture? I've probably seen almost every store at Mall of America somewhere else, but here it's nearly every store I've seen anywhere else all in one overgrown location. Our visit wasn't about the shopping though, it was about the experience. I think maybe all we bought was dinner and a bottle opener. It was impressive to see that it had its own RV park, though.
