Minneapolis is a pretty awful place, but if you have to go there, use the skyway. It keeps you away from the cold and far from the poverty and desperation on the streets.

Walked around from our downtown hotel through the Nicolet mall. What a fantastic experience. Went to so many places inside and it was really fun to get some exercise and see the inside of so many buildings and also enjoy the view of the downtown buildings. Great experience!

Look from Minneapolis from above. Christmas parades, winter shopping, general strolling shielded from the winter wind can all be accomplished by traveling the unique and safe skyways. Find any parking garage and start exploring. A great and uniquely local way to view the city.

This is a big network of walkways among many buildings in downtown Minneapolis. It is especially helpful in the winter because you can avoid the cold weather. Not too difficult to get around because there is decent signage, but it helps to know what direction you are going.

A lot of skyway walking will help. The system connects most of downtown and allows people to move from the Target center to the Vikings Stadium to various restaurants and parking ramps. I would hate MN if this didn't exist.

I was quite impressed with the Skyway. It was huge and connected many of the city's main buildings. It's worth walking through for the architectural feat of having such a system. I would recommend finding a map, though, because it is a tad hard to navigate.

There are miles of skyways throughout Minneapolis from the downtown shopping area, Target Center, Target Field, Convention Center & all the way to the new Vikings stadium. Makes for a very comfortable walk even in the most inclement weather. There are plenty of shops & restaurants along the way. Parts of it may get a bit confusing as you wind... More

It is perfect for Minneapolis winters. Connecting the public buildings in downtown it is perfect to get from one place to the other when the weather is not helping too much. The passages over the streets give also a great view.

I had heard of their system, but it is better in person. You can walk multiple places downtown without getting out the weather
