“Out of the elements”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

The Skyway system will get you from one end of Downtown Minneapolis to the other without ever going outside. Great when it is wet and when it is cold

“Minneapolis Skyway”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

This is really awesome to get around the city center and never have to go outside in the winter. Occasionally you can get lost, but that is an adventure.

“Full of Wonderful Suprises”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

Using the Skywalk System gets you to places you won't see by just walking the streets. Getting in to the system is very easy - where you see a bridge, go in to the building, regardless of what it is, and take the escalator to the second floor and voilà - you're in and ready to meander around and enjoy the surprises. There are even tiny corner shops as well as the department stores. It's a surreal system, used in may US cities, that can allow you to live without ever going outside, like being in a Science Fiction film.

“When the weather outside is frightful.....”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

The Minneapolis Skyway is a life saver. Twists and turns wind their way around the city and one never has to be exposed to the elements. Thank you for a wonderful convenience.
