Bloomington, Minnesota, about 10 miles south of the Twin Cities, is a popular destination for families. It is perhaps best-known for the Mall of America, which is the largest enclosed shopping mall in the country, as well as other fun attractions for the family such as the Nickelodeon Universe theme park and the Sea Life Minnesota Aquarium. The Great Wolf Lodge Water Park, also popular with families, is just a half-mile from the Mall of America, and the Minnesota Zoo is in nearby Apple Valley.
