Welcome to B
The beautiful nature of the nearby Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge combined with the city’s proximity to downtown Minneapolis and downtown Saint Paul truly makes Bloomington a one-of-a-kind getaway. Within its city limits,
you’ll find Mall of America, the largest retail and entertainment
destination in North America, as well as more than 40 hotels, miles of
greenery and parks, historic sites and incredible dining sure to please
local, national and international visitors alike.
In the Mall alone, there are more than 50 dining options, 400
free annual events with performances by national headliners and
an ever-expanding list of 520-plus stores for an infinite shopping
experience. And, thanks to no sales tax on clothing or shoes, your
money goes much farther here.
For a day of non-stop thrills and adrenaline, spend your time
enjoying 27 rides at the 7-acre Nickelodeon Universe® and fly high
above it all on the Barnacle Blast—North America’s longest indoor zip
line, soaring 55 feet above the theme park. Spend a part of your day
at SEA LIFE® Minnesota Aquarium, where you can see thousands of
creatures, or take in the immersive bird’s eye view FlyOver America
has to offer.
Just minutes away from the award-winning Minneapolis-Saint
Paul International Airport, Bloomington is a convenient, world-class
traveling destination. Right from the Mall or the airport, the Metro
Blue Line connects you to downtown Minneapolis, and from there
you can 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.
No matter your reason for visiting the metro area—a family event,
trip with friends, wedding or important business—Bloomington is
the center of it all.
