Welcome to Week Three of my Cathycation visits to Eagan, MN, and another opportunity to get your name in the drawing for a Cathycation Get-away of your own, compliments of the Eagan Convention & Visitors Bureau.   This is PERFECT timing too...after all, school clothes shopping is in full swing, or....at least you should get a start!

You should be able to find everything you're looking for in Mall of America's 520 stores, eat till your hearts content in MOA's 50 restaurants, and in between that excitement, enjoy time with the family at NICKELODEON UNIVERSE.

Don't worry about finding Nickelodeon Universe in the MOA, it is in the heart of everything!  Seven acres of unique attractions, entertainment and 27 rides....for all ages and levels of bravery.

It's like a year round State Fair with shopping surrounding you....heaven!   By the way....I didn't rock the Rock Bottom Plunge....we had just eaten and..and...yeah, I thought it was a good excuse to keep me off that ride too!

Besides shopping at the MOA, one of my favorite places to visit is the MN Sealife Aquarium.  They say Sea Life Aquarium is six amazing adventures in one!  Newly opened, is the breathtaking jellyfish exhibit, which uses the help of black lightning and colored bulbs to help you see how astonishing a jelly fish is....we also got involved with the Seahorses.  Seahorses are a mystery to me, so unusual.  With the help of Sea Life Aquarium, I had the opportunity to see Seahorse BABIES.  They looked like strands of hair, attached to the leaves in the aquarium.  Thank goodness they had experts that new what to look for!  You need to feel the rush of having a shark swim above your head, when you walk through the glass tunnel and are literally underwater with the fish!!!

Remember,when planning you're Back-to-School shopping trip to the Mall of America, use the "Pick Your Package" option with the Eagan Convention and Visitors Bureau.  Save money by staying a one of Eagan's 15 fabulous hotels, near the MOA and get a deal on it all!  (More to spend on the back to school supplies!)  SEE ALL THE PICK YOUR PACKAGES AVAILABLE!
