Large Oulet Malls near Mall of America

I will be staying at the Best Western near the Mall of America Sept 7-10 and will rent a car. I am looking for a LARGE outlet mall within 1 hour drive.

Shops at Albertille is probably the largest, it's about 40 minutes from the MOM - 494 west to 94 west to the Albertville exit.

There are two others, one in North Branch (about 60 minutes north on I35) & one in Owatonna/Medford (about an hour south on 35) but I don't think they are quite as large.

2nd vote for Albertville shops.

I'd recommend timing your drive to leave your hotel after rush hour has died down - 9 a.m., and try to be back to your hotel by 3:30 / 4 p.m..

I third Albertville

But I usually go on a weeknight evening to avoid the crowds.

Albertville during a workday is also not too busy.
