Eagan’s Cathycation Mall of America Pick Your Package Means Entertainment, Food and Shopping All at a Savings [Sponsored]

What a great time of the year to visit the Mall of America, it’s decorated for Christmas and the holiday spirit is lurking everywhere!  We took a Cathycation to enjoy the sights,  the huge array of food selections,  meet the Ninja Turtles and round out our holiday shopping list. Even better, the Eagan Convention Visitors Bureau wants to save you money on a stay at one of their 15 incredible hotels.  It’s called Pick Your Package (bring the whole family and friends)!

As I mentioned, the MOA holiday decorations are over the top!  Plus, there is entertainment at every turn of the corner.  We spent much of our time enjoying the choirs and my husband LOVED that Santa was set up in the  HGTV gingerbread house (all he needed was a couch and a remote and he would have felt at home)!  See, something for everyone and it’s different every day.

Nickelodeon Universe is over-the-top fun and it’s a climate controlled.  There is always something new to see at Nick U (as I lovingly call it), but this Cathycation had me experiencing the Ninja Turtles.  They took me in as one of their own!

Oh, and they tried to talk me into jumping onto their new ride at Nick U, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shell Shock.  But, after checking out the ride, I was Teenage Mutant CHICKEN!!!  But, I hear it’s a SCREAM!

I suggested we head to Moose Mountain’s Adventure Golf and play a round, my hubby can always use putting practice.

After that, we rounded out our holiday gift list and then the inevitable happened, we got hungry.  That’s a tough one, there are so many great restaurants to choose from!  One of our favorites is Bubba Gump Shrimp Company, are you a Forrest fan?

Or, you could try the lastest in cuisine at the Mall of America.  Dick’s Last Resort.  Word from the wise, don’t take it personal.  You’ll see what I mean!
