Things To Do In...MillvilleWednesday, August 8, 2007 | 7:20 AM
Round 9 of the AMA Toyota Motocross Championships presented by FMF takes us to Millville, Minnesota. That’s where you’ll find Spring Creek Motocross Park, which has been hosting AMA Nationals since August 28, 1983, when Bob Hannah and Ron Lechien took the overall victories. For more information about the Honda Pro National Weekend Presented by Unbound Energy and Scott USA, visit www.springcreekmx.com.
It’s the biggest mall in the world, with an amusement park, a massive aquarium, and more commercial businesses than you will find in most mid-sized cities! And they also have a really cool LEGO’s store complete with a life-sized #7 motocrosser hanging from the ceiling. www.mallofamerica.com It’s located right next to Minneapolis/St. Paul Airport.
Located n Burnsville, MN - Southern part of Minneapolis about 1.5 hrs from Millville - Good Times!
A lot of racers stay in Rochester, Minnesota, which is home to the following:
Unquestionably one of the Rochester area's most popular nightspots, Aquarius shares its building space with McMurphy's Sports Cafe. Boasting a high-tech light and sound show, Aquarius's dance floor is the place to see and be seen on weekend nights, especially if you're young and single….
McMurphy’s Sports Café
Irish-style pub gives the downtown crowd a place to hang out with friends, down some brews, eat some grub, and catch the Vikings, Twins, or T-Wolves on the tube. Never charges a cover.
The best thing to do with some spare time in Rochester is head to Skyline Raceway and Waterslide. This place is a good time. They have waterslides, diving boards, go kart tracks, mini golf, horseshoes and volleyball and picnic and BBQ areas. Go ahead and get crazy; lose a limb even, because on the other side of town is the Mayo Clinic. One of the best medical institutions around is the Mayo Clinic in Rochester. You could easily get sewn back together here.
