Bloomington, Minnesota, is a fun place to visit. I have been there many times in my life. I went with friends when I was single and now I go with my husband and kids. The main attraction I enjoy visiting in Bloomington, Minnesota, is the Mall of America. It is considered the largest mall in America and has more than 500 stores. It also has some great restaurants, and yes even amusement park rides for the kids. Some of the rides are not only for the kids but also the kids at heart. I enjoyed the roller coasters and log ride during one of my previous visits. I have also enjoyed the Under Water Adventures Aquarium at the Mall of America.
There are many hotels to choose from when you are visiting Bloomington. One of my favorite hotels is Embassy Suites. They offer 2 room suites, which is perfect for families. They also offer free made to order breakfast included in the hotel rate. Although, if Embassy Suites is not your pick of hotels you have no shortage of options. Also located in Bloomington is a Marriott, County Inn and Suites, Comfort Inn, Park Plaza, Sheraton, Crowne Plaza, and the Radisson, which features a Water Park of America. The Water Park of America is an indoor water park attached to the hotel that features 12 water slides, a lazy river, and multiple kid play areas. You really can't go wrong with any hotel in the city of Bloomington. As it's really not about where you stay, it's about what you do when you're there.
