Layover

I messed up our flight home and we know have a 5 hour layover with an infant in St Paul. Any thoughts on how to kill some time?

I assume your layover is at MSP airport?

You could take the light rail from the airport to the Mall of America.

I second that -

you're so close to the MegaMall - that would be a convenient way to kill time.

Here's the route map -

you catch the light rail @ the Lindburgh terminal - one floor BELOW baggage claim - all the way to the back.

Catch a 20 second people mover, and down some more - to catch it.

It will drop you off - after maybe 3 stops - to below the main floor of the Mega-Mall.

The MOM is the end of the line.....so when you're ready to head back to MSP it's idiot proof - I've done it! :D

As much as I dislike the mall, it's really the only logical choice to kill time. And for someone who hasn't seen it, it's not a bad thing to visit.

Train is nice, clean, safe. Child rides for free.
