Christmas Shopping on Black FridayGet the jump on Christmas shopping by starting on Black Friday. If you can get out of bed that early, and stand the crowds, that is.
Malls in the Twin CitiesWe have the mightiest mall in the nation, Mall of America, right here. Despite the thousands and thousands of shoppers, the mall is so vast it's rare it gets too busy to shop at.
If you can't face the megamall, there are plenty of other large malls locally.
Shopping AreasShopping areas and neighborhoods are abundant around the Twin Cities. A blend of independent stores, the cooler chain stores, restaurants and coffee shops make for a wonderful afternoon of shopping. There's the well-known shopping locations like Edina, St. Paul's Grand Avenue, and charming downtown Stillwater, and up-and-coming areas like Northeast Minneapolis, and Selby and Snelling in St. Paul.
