Mall Of America Listed As One Of The ‘Most Overrated Tourist Attractions’
I've got beef with a new list that just came out--It lists the Mall of America in Bloomington as the tenth most overrated tourist attraction in America.
The reason being, "It's just a big mall." Well, to the makers of this list, let me ask you some questions; does your mall have a theme park smack dab in the middle of it?! Does your mall have Sea Life, or giant figurines made out of Legos? I doubt it. MOA is one of the coolest tourists attractions around.
It's not just 'a big mall.' It's a ton of things all in one. They also have some pretty cool restaurants that you can't really get anywhere else in Minnesota--Bubba Gump, Dick's Last Resort and Rainforest Cafe. I seriously doubt any other mall is as cool as this.
I'd also like to point out that MOA has a variety of specialty stores that sell things you won't find at other malls. One of my favorite specialty stores is It'Sugar. That's where I got my Jelly Belly Bean Boozled game. They a version of Lucky Charms cereal that's just marshmallows. You heard me right--JUST MARSHMALLOWS.
I should mention, MOA has FIVE Caribou Coffee stores. How many does your mall have? I could go on and on. But seriously, the Grand Canyon is not a better tourist attraction...it's just a hole in the ground.
