The skyway system is brilliant. Be sure to try it out if you are visiting the area. The views are really grand. Residents are fortunate to have this. A friend who works in the city says she uses it all the time especially to take walks on her lunch hour when the weather is bad.

The Minneapolis Skyway System was a pretty cool way to traverse the city without having to set foot outside and walk about the streets. A lot of the major buildings in the city are connected by this system and I would think it's a convenient mode of moving about during the winter, where it can get quite cold. I would say the only drawback with the system is that if you don't know where you're going, then it is extremely easy to lose track of where you are and get lost. However, that's part of the fun of this system for a visitor. Getting lost and then managing to find your way back is a fun little accomplishment for any tourist.

I love the skyways as a great way to get from one place to another. It also gives us a second floor of shops, restaurants and etc. It is very welcome in the winter months as you have no need to go outside.

I understand the necessity for the skyway, when its 10* below zero most months, however the art of negotiating the system eludes me!! I was armed with a skyway map and determination this time to conquer Nicollet Mall, but once again fled to the closest exit to breath fresh air and sweet freedom! When I passed the same Tea Shop 3 times, I panicked! Maybe yellow stripes on the floor or ceilings with lots of arrows and giant signs would help!
