The Mall of America speaks for itself but there are terrific parks in Bloominton as well. Hyland Park has it all: first off, it's huge. In summer there are miles of hiking and biking trails. In winter, cross country skiing and even a ski jump. The best part is the large playground area with an air-condtioned concession area.
The hotel with a water park, Kincaad's restuarant, Normandale Lake, it is all here.
