Thanks Ken- that is awesome!

I e-mailed MOA and they responded that Mall of America opens its doors at 6am every day for mall walkers. Retail stores and Nickelodeon Universe do not open until 10am and 10:30am (Sunday).

Hi,

If it's even a little warm I love to walk around Lake Harriet. I walk in the skyway downtown when it's really cold out. I walk to Target and carry all my stuff home! Sometime I regret that bleach!

Hope that helps. Hey Ken- what time does the MOA open for walkers?

I usually just walk in my neighborhood--there are sidewalks on nearly every street. I have a few favorite houses I like to walk by to enjoy their front yard gardens. There's one that is like a little bird sanctuary, even in the winter. I so aspire to a front yard like that!

If you want to walk outside, all of the lakes have sidewalks that are kept relatively clean. Phalen, in St Paul, is gorgeous! And any of the Mpls chain lakes are great. We also have an enormous local, regional and state park system and almost all of them have hiking trails that are groomed in the winter. Good Luck!

I recommend malls because I don't tolerate the blistering cold (even bundled up!). There are a ton of them, but I prefer the Mall of America. It seems the most entertaining and I personally like the layout. You won't get bored there. I know there are a lot of outdoor walkers here too, so hopefully someone else will have other ideas.

For the Mall of America, they have more info on walking there at:

And, they also have some program that can track your walks and you can earn discounts, but I don't know much about it. That info is here:
