Mall of America, Funky Shopping Boutiques, and Much More!
From browsers to bargain hunters to big spenders, everybody knows the joys of shopping.
But did you know that Minnesota invented the modern day shopping experience?
With the first enclosed mall and the largest shopping complex in the country – not to mention zero sales tax on clothing and shoes – the greater Saint Paul area is a shopper’s paradise. Mall of America is the nation’s largest indoor shopping and entertainment center with over 520 retail stores, 50 restaurants, and an indoor theme park, aquarium and wedding chapel. Lined with charming Victorian homes that have been converted to boutiques, Grand Avenue in Saint Paul offers an eclectic mix of popular brands and unique items. For folks who love to stretch their shopping dollars, there are several fabulous outlet malls just a short drive from downtown.
