Mall Of America Makes List Of Biggest Tourist Traps In US
Minnesota's Mall Of America just landed itself as the biggest tourist trap in Minnesota. A list was recently published by Thrillist, and many people called the Mall "an overrated tourist trap."
The Mall Of America, unfortunately, made that list. Why? People who commented basically said it's just a big mall, with a few rides. Maybe they didn't see all of it? Did they know that they have the Sea Life Aquarium?
I will say that as a kid it was pretty awesome to visit. As an adult, it doesn't have the same feeling. But it is a mall, not Disney World. That's what Redditor BunchOCrunch had to say a few years back. The list has been updated several times over the years, and Mall Of America continues to hold its spot.
If you look at Yelp reviews, the Mall Of America actually has a pretty good rating of 3.9 stars. Still, there were some 1-star reviews by some people not happy.
Dayson says the bathrooms are an issue.
Justin B from Philadelphia says that there isn't anything special.
I think that's taking it too far. It's definitely got a lot of other things that other malls don't have. What about The Lego Store?
There are plenty of people who really like the Mall Of America. Like these travel bloggers Matt and Nat. They had a great time, but they did say they understood it was really touristy.
You should check out the lists of other states' most overrated tourist locations. For example, in Texas The Alamo was listed as the most overrated. I just visited it for the first time this month on a family vacation to Texas. The list was right, it's really not that amazing. It's a little brick house in the yard, but at least I could check it off as a historic place I've visited.
