It’s possible to woo your sweetie in the middle of a massive mall. Let us show you the ways:

PARK. East side

Aim for the center mall doors since you will likely be here after the stores close.

PLAY. Moose Mountain Adventure Golf

Mini golf! Play, talk, work that swing in the corny but cute “north woods” setting, while taking in the view of Nickelodeon Universe. Admission is $10 per person.

376 North Garden

SHOP. Kiehl’s

Explore aromas, sample lotions and potions, then squeeze into the photo booth together to commemorate the moment.

121 North Garden

EAT (old school). Twin City Grill

Good old comfort food and classic cocktails in a dimly lit, upscale casual setting where you can wear jeans, but feel good about taking a date. Indulge in meatloaf, walleye or turkey and stuffing, or pair one of the flatbreads with a local craft beer. There are also good options on the gluten-free menu.

130 North Garden

EAT (hipster). Masu Sushi & Robata

Belly up to the sushi bar and let the chefs at this modern restaurant prepare a beautiful, fresh Japanese dish for you. Bon Appetit named Masu one of the 10 Best New Sushi Restaurants in America for 2012. It’s definitely one of the coolest spots to dine at the mall.

344 South Avenue

PLAY. Nickelodeon Universe

Time to step it up—seven stories up—on the ferris wheel. (You don’t have to invest in an all-access wristband; just step up to an automated machine at any park entrance and buy enough points for one or two rides.)

5100 Center Court

PLAY. House of Comedy

Not ready for this date to end? Have a laugh together. Late shows start at 10:30 p.m. most Friday and Saturday nights.

408 East Broadway

STAY. Radisson Blu Mall of America 

Really want to make this a night to remember? Book a room at Radisson Blu Mall of America, the only hotel connected to the mall by skyway. Sleep in, get breakfast at the hotel’s FireLake Grill House & Cocktail Bar, take a dip in the salt water pool, book a couples massage at the hotel’s Solimar Spa. Repeat.

2100 Killebrew Drive
