Travel Tip of the Day: How to Spend a Long Layover at Minneapolis-St. Paul

Nickelodeon Universe in Mall of America

How to Spend a Long Layover at Minneapolis-St. Paul
I recently returned from my third visit to Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota—and for the third time, it blew me away. You can easily spend days/weeks at Mall of America, but it’s also great for travelers since it’s just a few miles from the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport (MSP), which is a major hub for Delta Air Lines. And it’s easy to travel between the two since there’s a light rail ($1.75) right from the airport to the mall so you don’t even have to go outside to get there—and you can stop by on a long layover.

Here’s more on the MOA, how to save big and more insight from some of America’s top travel bloggers.
