About five miles west of Minneapolis International, the Super 8 in Bloomington is a low-cost way to gain all the typical perks of the scenery. Minus the noise and plus the calmness, the simple hotel is placed at the heart of the small town’s 2nd Avenue, offering free continental breakfast as well as 24-hour shuttles to the airport. In addition to an indoor pool & spa, certain suites come with an in-room whirlpool tubs that offer a flair of romance setting it apart from the rest. With large work desks, close access to fast-food, and free Wifi at your disposal, you’ll be glad you went the simple route to get work done quick.
Look forward to simple escapes when time permits, starting with Roosevelt Park on 4th Avenue. Home to quaint trails and easy access to the Asian Direct Oriental Market, the spot’s got a lot of charm, not to mention plenty of places to people-watch. Take advantage of nearby eateries when lunch swings around, choosing between the classic burgers and fries from Culver’s or Chinese at 1st Wok, afterward going out for desert at locally-popular Denny’s 5th Avenue Bakery, serving acclaimed cakes & pastries to the neighborhood for decades. Another cool hotspot is Mall of America, located just south of the airport and offering mega-sized fun that includes a theme park, restaurants, and weekend events perfect for ending the day.
