Great way to get around Downtown Minneapolis, without ever having to touch the ground.

“sometimes locked”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2012

It's great to connect you from building to building, especially in the winter, but some sections are locked after hours, so it isn't away reliable.

“The Weather Outside is Frightful, the View Inside Delightful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2012

My parents live in the Twin Cities and so we visit often. There are events downtown often from Twins games in the summer and the Holidazzle parade in the winter. If you stay downtown, the weather can be rainy or too warm in the summer and downright nasty in the winter. The skyway system makes it so that you rarely have to go outside, but can still go most places downtown. You gotta love it! That being said, it is not always easy to navigate inside if you don't know where you are going.

“Great Way to stay warm in the winter”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2012

Walking the skyway system is one of the hidden gems of the city. You can get around without freezing.

“take a day to explore”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

why are the streets so quiet- even during lunch hour? Get yourself up to the second story and you will be amazed. shopping, eating, entertainment- it's all there and you don't even have to take your coat off. The maps and other way-finding signs are very helpful. A unique feature to this cold town!
