Welcome to B
From the bluffs of the Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge to the nearby downtown meccas of Minneapolis and Saint Paul, Bloomington truly offers a one-of-a-kind getaway. Within its city limits, you’ll find the incomparable
Mall of America, the largest retail and entertainment destination in
North America, as well as more than 40 distinct hotels, historic sites,
miles of green space and world class dining sure to delight the most
In the Mall alone, there are more than
50 dining options, 400 free
annual events with performances by national headliners and infinite
shopping opportunities in its 520-plus stores. And with no sales tax
on clothing or shoes, your money goes much farther here.
In search of non-stop thrills? Drop your bags with the Mall’s valet
and spend a day riding the indoor roller coasters at Nickelodeon
Universe®, flying high above it all on Barnacle Blast—North America’s
longest indoor zip line soaring 55 feet above the theme park—or
getting up close and personal with thousands of creatures from the
deep blue at SEA LIFE® Minnesota Aquarium.
Just minutes from Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport,
Bloomington is like no other. From here, you can connect to
downtown Minneapolis via the METRO Blue Line or transfer onto
the Green Line, which will take you to the heart of Saint Paul. Both
downtowns are home to some of the country’s greatest performing
arts, theaters, museums and nightlife.
Whether you’re in town for a family reunion, visiting friends or on
business, Bloomington is at the center of it all.
