Great way to get around city in bad weather

Excellent way to get around the city when it's cold. You can stay indoors for miles of city skyway. Be careful and keep track of where your going it is easy to get list.

What a way to get my exercise! I was able to get to the convention center and back to my hotel easily enough. AND I am glad to know there was a police officer on duty as well to maintain the safety. <3

Takes a while to figure out but it's so helpful once you get it. Don't be afraid to stop and ask locals where you are going.

Skyway system is definitely a premium for cold winter days. However, it also works well if you are in a suit on a hot summer day. Convenient.

Extremely handy during the winter months, I wish other cities in more cold climates had it. Plenty of stores, places to eat, and always buzzing during the work week.

There are 6 miles of skywalk in downtown Minneapolis. You can eat, shop, dry clean, massage, nails, hair...Just about anything you need. Very easy to use.

Unique system that connects most of downtown Minneapolis with a series of skyways that are climate controls. Great way to get around during the winter.

The skyway is a great way to travel around Minneapolis in the winter and in the rain. It's clean and also a great way to see the sights and buildings of Minneapolis - definitely have a map or a sense of direction, because you could get turned around, however you can usually see street signs from the skyway so you...

Coming from a city that is cold most of the year in totally jealous of the skaywalks, an engenious idea which is easy to use and gets you from one side of the side of the city to he other in no time at all in total comfort.
