Mom-Cation Shop and Stay in Minneapolis South

Plan a getaway for Mom in Minneapolis South with world-class shopping, bountiful brunches, and great places to stay. There are more things to do in the gateway to the Twin Cities other than shopping…but it’s mostly about shopping. Make her feel pampered, appreciated – and tell her to bring an extra suitcase!

Mom-cation Minneapolis South

Malls & Outlets

Moms do not have tons of time to shop, so make the most of it in Minneapolis South by visiting a mall or outlet. Of course, Mall of America® is nearby – but these other hotspots have huge savings (and smaller crowds)!

Twin Cities Premium Outlets – If Mom loves to save, then she will find heaven at Twin Cities Premium Outlets. Enjoy high-end fashion for up to 60% off at her favorite stores such as Coach, Ann Taylor, and J. Crew.

Central Park Commons – All of her favorite specialty and department stores such as Marshalls, DSW, Sierra Trading Post, and HomeGoods are at Central Park Commons. Grab some Italian Street Food at Piada, or get a massage to refuel for more shopping!

Burnsville Center – This one-stop shop is packed with everything Mom needs and is perfect for a cold and rainy day. When you are done tearing through Kirklands, Macys, and Old Navy – grab some sushi and frozen yogurt.


If your Mom is over corporate department stores, show her the wonderful boutiques in Minneapolis South.

Ficus + Fig – This local gem is stocked with hand selected products. Mom will love the unique aprons, purses, scarves, bird feeders, and so much more.

Reina’s Boutique – Dress Mom to impress with the help of Reina’s Boutique. This store carries everything from classy jewelry to laid back flip flops. They also have an extensive collection of women’s plus size clothing!


There are few better ways to show your appreciation for Mom than taking her out for a classy brunch. Whether she fancies omelets, waffles, or bottomless mimosas – you will find what she wants in the gateway to the Twin Cities!

Chart House Sunday – One of the most renowned restaurants in the area serves an amazing brunch every Sunday. Enjoy carved prime rib, made-to-order omelets, champagne, and more in this ship-shaped restaurant on the water!

The Mason Jar – Weekend brunch at The Mason Jar is a local favorite (as is their French toast). If you order a mimosa or Bloody Mary – expect it to be served in a signature mason jar. Everyone feels replenished, and extra giggly after a brunch at The Mason Jar!


After all the shopping and brunching, add a little dash of these ideas!

Mainstreet Coffee & Wine Bar – Ask any Mom, and they will tell you the important role coffee and wine play in their lives. Mainstreet Coffee & Wine Bar serves small batch coffee and hand selected wines in its cozy space or expansive outdoor patio.

Coupon Books – Moms are sensible, which means they love to save money. The Enjoy Eagan Coupon Book and the Experience Burnsville Coupon Book offer discounts on restaurants and attractions. A responsible present like this will show Mom she taught you well. (Also check out these deals on dining and shopping in Lakeville!)
