American Dream:
East Rutherford, NJ

In one of the lobby areas at the American Dream Mall there are huge signs proclaiming “Ultimate Dream Daycation” with one of the attractions featured. I beg to differ. American Dream Mall has enough activities to do for a few days and there are many more attractions scheduled to open in the next little while. American Dream is a 3 million square foot destination with something for everyone. American Dream is not a mall but a destination for all things entertainment, shopping, dining, and even relaxation.

There are lots of beautifully designed areas and lobbies throughout the American Dream. The Secret Garden is the most amazing area with a large fountain in the center with paths, benches and greenery all around. It was created using mountains of preserved natural moss, along with crystals, and mushrooms. There are also sculptures of gnomes and bunnies within the garden. It truly is a serene corner to relax and recharge.

Currently there aren’t a very large number of stores open yet but quite a few of the stores along with attractions have opened already. The most major attractions are Big Snow indoor skiing, Nickelodeon Universe amusement park, Dreamworks Water Park (which I haven’t visited yet) and the NHL sized Ice Rink. There are two mini golf courses. One with the Angry Birds theme and the other is glow in the dark with an outer space theme. Some of the vendors also offer activities such as Make It Too Ceramic painting and the Riders-electric Riding Animals.

During busy times such as during holidays and vacations it is especially advisable to book your activities in advance online.
