Mar­vel­lous Mall

Let's Travel - - Minnesota -

It should come as no sur­prise, that over the past 30 years, in­ter­na­tional visi­tors to the USA have con­sis­tently listed shop­ping as their “num­ber one ac­tiv­ity”, and the list of ‘must have’ items on hand at the mas­sive ‘Mall of Amer­ica’ (MoA) lures more than four in ten con­sumers an­nu­ally. Six­teen mil­lion tourists visit MoA each year and spend over US $500 mil­lion in the process. The ‘Mall’ is Min­nesota’s num­ber one tourist at­trac­tion, and a big part of the draw is that there is no sales tax on cloth­ing…and the great thing is ev­ery­thing is un­der one gi­gan­tic roof.

Like fe­lines to cat­nip visi­tors flock to the ‘Mall’. The to­tal num­ber of visi­tors an­nu­ally to MoA ex­ceeds the com­bined pop­u­la­tions of North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa and Canada. The bot­tom-line is that the Mall is mar­vel­lous! So bring plenty of green­backs or plenty of plas­tic and wear very comfy walk­ing shoes!
