On a cold winter day you can challenge yourself to see how far you can go without having to go outside. Legend has it you can walk for miles. Lots of little interesting shops to see along the way.

Our tour guide told us that much of the Skyway System is privately owned by the buildings it connects. Interesting. The Skyway connects the 2nd floor of of over 80 buildings and 11 miles of downtown Minneapolis.
