YOUR HOME BASE
Mall of America® is your shopping and entertainment home base, and it’s also part of a
major transportation hub. The Mall is only three minutes away from Minneapolis-St. Paul
International Airport by car and is easily accessed by public transportation; the METRO
Blue Line gets you there in 13 minutes. It’s a breeze to bookend your trip with a visit
to the Mall, and its location at Interstate 494 and Highway 77 means Minneapolis and
St. Paul are a mere 15 minutes away. Rental cars, taxis, buses, trains and our Nice Ride
bikeshare program are just some of the options that can take you throughout the metro.
