We are enjoying our stay at The Best Western Premier in Burnsville MN. We slept in and had a late breakfast. Then we relaxed in our room till after lunch.
After lunch we went out to visit The Mall of America. The mall is about 7 miles from our hotel. Along the way we passed over the Cedar Avenue Bridge.
We approached the mall from the South and as you can see in the photos, this area is under construction.
The parking is very easy and we found a spot without any problems.
Inside the mall it was reassuring to see this sign, something that you would never see in a Canadian Mall.
The Mall of America is owned by the same group that owns The West Edmonton Mall which we visited last summer. There are about 522 retail business located inside. The WEM is larger in size than the MOA, however the WEM doesn’t have as many businesses inside…
The LEGO display was very interesting. I can’t imagine how many pieces of LEGO go into creating one of these displays.
There is a large roller coaster and other rides in the mall.
And of course the 522 stores, but since Karen and I are not shoppers, there was nothing much of interest for us in the mall. I did go in the Apple Store to look at the new computers and to learn more about “Apple TV” which is a $100.00 device that would link the internet to our TV using wireless technology so that we could then download anything from the internet or iTunes store and play on our TV. I will look at this further once we get home.
The sunset was something to see this evening… sort of reminds me of photos I have seen of the planet Jupiter.
To see all of our photos from today you can see them on our FLICKR site.
