Visitors/ Relocation

Bloomington is home of Mall of America, the largest shopping and entertainment complex in the United States, and number one Minnesota tourism attraction. Conveniently located at the crossroads of Interstate highways 494 and I-35W and adjacent to the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport, it's just minutes to downtown Minneapolis, St. Paul, central scenic lakes, parks and many exciting Minnesota travel opportunities.


Once you've experienced Bloomington's superior shopping, fine hotels, restaurants, ease of access, variety of attractions, friendly people, and beautiful parks, you'll know why visitors near and far call Bloomington "The City of Hospitality."
