Travel Adventures: Minneapolis, USA

One of my dear friends Motunrayo,  lives in Minneapolis. I finally had an opportunity to pay her a visit in April  last year and it was such a fun trip. I didn’t expect much out of the visit in terms of sight seeing since the weather was still chilly but I was in for a surprise.

The high point of my trip was visiting the Mall of America and the Minnehaha Falls. Shopping for clothes was also a big deal because of the sales tax exemption for clothes in Minnesota which meant I could buy clothes at cheaper prices.


The Mall of America is a shopping mall located in Bloomington, Minnesota, a suburb of the Twin Cities in Minnesota, United States. Opened in 1992, it is the largest mall in the United States in terms of total floor area (including Nickelodeon Universe), the fifth largest mall in North America in terms of leasable space and the twelfth largest in the world.





Of course, I found the Barnes & Noble bookstore at the mall and bought a book or two as keepsakes.



Minnehaha Park is a city park in Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States, and home to Minnehaha Falls and the lower reaches of Minnehaha Creek. Officially named Minnehaha Regional Park, it is part of the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board system and lies within the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area, a unit of the National Park Service.




The falls are located on Minnehaha Creek near the creek’s confluence with the Mississippi River, near Fort Snelling.




More than 850,000 people visit Minnehaha Falls each year, and it continues to be the most photographed site in Minnesota.



Many thanks again to Ayo for being a brilliant hostess and being my partner for splendid adventures!
