MALL OF AMERICA BLOOMINGTON, MINNESOTA With enough room to fit seven Yankee Stadiums inside, the Mall of America holds more than 570 restaurants, stores and attractions within its walls, staking its claim as the largest shopping mall in the United States. If guests spent 10 minutes in each store, it would take them around 86 hours to explore the entire mall. MUST SEE: In addition to a huge number of retail options, the complex houses a 1.2 million-gallon aquarium. SPECIAL GROUP EXPERIENCE: To make it a more memorable outing, try the behind-the-scenes tour at the aquarium or an educational program on the physics of theme park rides at Nickelodeon Universe. www.mallofamerica.com CITY MUSEUM ST. LOUIS The City Museum might be the only museum where guests are encouraged to touch and climb on the exhibits. Originally a shoe factory, the 600,000-square-foot building was converted into a spectacular urban playground during the 1990s using repurposed material such as abandoned planes, salvaged bridge parts, con- struction cranes and chimneys. While its themes are always expanding, some of the current highlights are 10-story slides, tunnels made from old cooling tubes, thou- sands of fiberglass icicles and an old Ferris wheel on the roof. MUST SEE: No trip to the museum is complete without a race down its famous 10-story slides, which can be found throughout the caves. SPECIAL GROUP EXPERIENCE: For game enthusiasts, the spiraling cave tunnels make a great venue for hide-and-seek. www.citymuseum.org The Henry Ford The Wilds Courtesy The Henry Ford Courtesy The Wilds Courtesy City Museum Courtesy Strategic Air Command City Museum Nebraska's Strategic Air Command
