When it comes to shopping in Minneapolis, travelers will be spoilt for choice.

The gargantuan Mall of America is bound to take up most of your attention, combining limitless shopping with great entertainment and dining options. Among some of the highlights are the four department stores of Macy's, Sears, Bloomingdale's and Nordstrom, and children's favourite, the Nickelodeon Amusement Park.

The downtown Minneapolis area also benefits from the Nicollet Mall, which features a multitude of popular retailers such as Crate & Barrel.

Other great shopping areas include the shop-lined street of Hennepin Avenue, and the smaller Dinkytown, Linden Hills and Riverfront District. Though they can't compete with the downtown area in terms of sheer numbers, these shopping districts offer a refreshingly different experience in their variety of unique and local stores.

Located next to a range of shopping areas including Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis hotels provide the perfect lodgings for shopaholics. The Millennium Hotel Minneapolis is ideally situated for all shopping districts, offering travelers convenient access to a wide range of retail therapies.
