When I first drove up, I must admit that I was not impressed. From the exterior, it really did not look that big.
I pulled into an empty spot in the five story parking structure, and prepared for disappointment. Even when I walked in, it looked like a five story version of Rivertown mall. Not what I was expecting, to say the least.
Once I started walking, I realized the true vastness of the Mall of America. I had about four hours to shop, and I never made it off the second level. My one regret? I forgot to bring a pair of tennis shoes.
Other tidbits from my trip to Minnesota- I paid $27 for parking downtown (terribly hard for this dutch girl), seeing Josh's aunt and uncle who so generously let me stay with them plus took me out to dinner to boot, driving around for 40 minutes trying to find a gas station to fill up my rental car to no avail. $7 a gallon is the going rate, and I have to now pay it (harder still for the dutch girl in me).
Any one else ever been to Mall of America?
