Minneapolus is renown for many things, and the Skyway system in one shining star. Over 8 miles of attractive, weatherproof, and secure skyway connections link most of the business and commercial sites of the downtown--including 2 stadiums and the Convention Center, hotels, and retail. Great...More

The skyway system is the best idea. Every big city should do this. In the winter you don’t have to go out side in the cold for very long. You can walk in a nice warm building till it ends then go out side for...More

I visited Minneapolis for work in February. Needless to say, I was not keen on wandering the surface streets so I grabbed a skyway map from the hotel and ventured out. It's really an amazing system, and it's amazing that all these businesses are connected...More

Skyways are a fun way to get around downtown. Sometimes they are a bit confusing but that's half the fun. Read the signs and dont be afraid to ask for directions. Most folks downtown are proud of the skyway and would be more than happy...More

We tried to get to Target but one of the access doors was locked. We were not sure why. Other people tried to open in as they were coming from the parking deck and heading to Target.

Using the Skyway system downtown is a wonderful way of getting around. It is a lot faster than trying to get around outside and waiting for the lights to change. Pretty easy to get around by just reading the signs.

We have skywalks in Duluth as well, but both my wife and myself were really impressed with the one in Minneapolis. We used it to walk from Government Plaze where we parked our car towards Target Field for the baseball game. It was very clean,...More
