My husband and I are going to Minneapolis on a 2-day trip. 1. I would like to know the easiest and cheapest way to the Mall of America, I heard the train from the airport takes you. 2.Is the mall close to the airport? 3. Distance between airport and mall so I will know whether to get a room closest to mall or airport. 4. What area is the airport so that I can look for hotels near airport. I need easy access back to the airport on our return home. 5. What other attractions are there for 2 adults ages 45-50?

I want to add onto the other person's answer that the lightrail will take you straight from the MOA (mall of america) to downtown Minneapolis on 1st Ave and 5 st. This is near the famous First Ave club, which hosts a wide variety of shows/concerts, and it's right in the heart of downtown Minneapolis. You can walk around and enjoy just about anything from there and in the winter you can easily get into the skyway system to avoid the bad weather. You can take a bus from there to the Walker Art Center (which is a little over a mile away from that point). Staying near the light rail/MOA area of Bloomington is what I would highly recommend if you're going to take a short trip here.

It's only four stops and about ten minutes between the Mall of America and the airport on Minneapolis' MetroTransit light rail, so I think your best bet is just to find a hotel near the Mall of America. Service starts at around 4am each day and runs until the wee small hours, so little chance of missing your flight. The Mall is in the Bloomington area of town; you can find more info about where to stay at: http://www.bloomingtonmn.org. Beyond all the shopping at the Mall of America, there's live entertainment, restaurants and bars, an aquarium, even an over-21 movie theater that serves beer and wine!
