The Minneapolis skyway system networks the second (and in one case, third) floor of skyscrapers dotted throughout the downtown. This is great when you are staying in an area hotel and is extremely useful to the thousands of corporate employees that work downtown, as they can leave their coats in the highway while seeking lunch in one of the many lunch-only restaurants open. There are a few hidden gems in the highway: Muddy Waters coffee, the food court on the fourth floor of Gaavidae Commons and the occasional pop-up art gallery or clothing boutique. The main disadvantage of the skyway is that the doors between buildings are usually locked by 9 pm and most of the businesses along it close at 5 pm. Also, watch out: there have been multiple recent thefts/muggings on LaSalle Avenue, right outside the downtown Target. There are unobtrusive emergency call buttons along the walls of the skyway paths - keep an eye out for them, just in case.
