In my travels, I did find a dedicated Lego store in a mall in Ontario, California. I have no clue if it's still there.

Ontario Mills...yep, it's still there! As Jeff said, Lego stores are in a lot of malls too, though not sure about The Greene or Fairfield Commons? ;)

Yeah...not quite. :)

Been to the Disney and MOA stores. Would like to avoid traveling in excess of 500 miles to buy Lego sets. ;)

There is a new Lego store at the Easton mall in Columbus and I have also visited the one in Chicago.

Now that I looked it up, I see there is one in Cincinnati too.

Didn't realize they were starting to put these in all over.

^But then you'd actually have to venture out to (meh) Kings Island!! ;)

Although the plain multi-colored brick set is cool, we really like the flat bricks. They are kind of hard to come by unless you can swing out to, ahem, Legoland. We have so many I was able to make a rectangular slinky. ;)

I would like to see more Legolands. :) The one in SoCal was a very pleasant surprise and worth every penny. I have never been much of a Lego person but you can't help but love anything associated with them. :)

A waterpark would be a riot. I would love to see that!

What about a Legoland in Indianpolis? Think of the tie-ins they could do with the Indy 500...

We have a newly opened Lego store at our lovely mall, the Easton Town Center. Opening weekend they had a 2 hour line outside the building just to get in. I checked it out last week, on a weekday, and I almost laughed - the place was no bigger than my living room.

I'm not that familiar with their products, but I did notice a lot of the aforementioned sets (they had a carousel that was interesting, but not at that price!) and they had a wall of bulk bins where you could stock up on standard blocks in every color known to man. I expected to see at least a few of those cool Legoland type sculptures like you see at the Downtown Disney store, but nothing.
