shopping mall. Anchored by Macy’s, Nordstrom and Sears, the

an appointment at the Solimar Spa in the Radisson Blu Mall
of America. Solimar Spa offers a complete array of decadent

House of Comedy or one of the many other hotspots on the
Mall’s fourth level for a late lunch or early happy hours.

Chanhassen Dinner Theatres. Nestled in an inviting complex in
the nearby town of Chanhassen, the dinner theater that shares
its name is one of the most consistently accomplished and has
some of the highest production standards in the nation. Each
season at “the Chan”, as locals like to call it, might include
high-energy takes on Broadway musicals such as “Hello, Dolly”
and “Mary Poppins.”
Day Three: Plan a half-day trip to Saint Croix Vineyards in
Stillwater to see Minnesota’s largest and best-known winery.
Try their wines, take a picturesque stroll through the vineyards
and enjoy a delicious lunch by the pond on their grounds.
Public and private tours of the grounds are available. Don’t
forget to take home a case of “souvenirs” from your trip.

Midwest casinos, is the designated wrap-up party place for
your three-day extravaganza. Prepare to dine on a magnificent
selection of food at The Buffet in Mystic Lake. Tempt your
