If you think the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota is just a huge shopping center, you're mistaken. This massive complex is not only perfect for those in need of a shopping fix for a day or even two, but it's also a haven for foodies with over 50 dining options. And, the mall has some truly amazing attractions to keep everyone entertained.

Most people know about the amusement park inside the mall, but not everyone knows about the state-of-the-art rock climbing facility, the flight simulator, or the impressive aquarium. And now, Mall officials are getting ready for yet another incredibly unique attraction to open.

ūü™¶ Tour One of Idaho's Oldest Cemeteries

Star Cemetery, Star, Idaho [Part I]

ūüóíÔłŹ Records from the City of Star report Star Cemetery was originally known as Home of the Peace Cemetery. But one of the most fascinating aspects of the cemetery are the storied souls laid to rest there.

ūüóļÔłŹ Interred within the hollowed grounds are frontiersmen and pioneers who died on the historical Oregon Trail around the year 1870. Veterans and prominent local families of yesterday can also be found there.
