Mall of America is located in Bloomington about 24 miles south of KOA campground. It is said to be the largest mall in the United States with over 400 stores. The mall is a destination and receives over 49 million visitors annually.
In the center of the mall is Nickelodeon Universe featuring seven acres of unique attractions, movie theaters, and restaurants. The sheer size, neon signs flashing, music blaring was all part of the experience of our visit.
J.J. and I needed to buy a sleeping bag liner and a set of thermal underwear at LL Beans.

After our shopping, we had excellent Japanese lunch at Masu Sushi & Robata.

Back at the KOA campground. I was able to do additional walking exercise. We also did our laundry and took shower before the sun set and the temperature began to drop.
Overall, it was a wonderful day!
