Mall of America - For a shopping experience unlike any other, visit the Mall Of America. To say it is HUGE is an understatement, and the indoor amusement park complete with roller coasters and a log flume is quite impressive. Even if you donít buy a thing, youíll be glad you can say you were there. From the conference hotel, itís a short walk to the light rail and then a quick trip to the MoA.
