"If Minneapolis ever was deserving of the title “design capital,” it certainly is now."
Metropolis magazine, May 2005


Skyways

Minneapolis Skyways

Skyway in downtown Minneapolis

Minneapolis is unique in many ways, but the skyway system is one of our most striking, one-of-a-kind assets. When the weather turns sour, you can use the skyway system to get where you need to go.

One floor above ground, this system links buildings together with enclosed walkways. It connects most of downtown Minneapolis in climate-controlled bliss.

Most downtown hotels are connected to this unique system, and you'll have access to fabulous downtown shopping including Gaviidae Common and City Center. So when the temperature plummets or the rain falls, ditch the coat in the hotel room. Explore downtown Minneapolis through more than 7 miles of glass-enclosed skyways.

Quick Tips
 

Shopping marathon
Head to downtown Minneapolis and park for free through the Do the Town Parking Program. Explore our incredible downtown shopping through the skyways.

Then catch the light-rail train along 5th Street to the Mall of America. Get lunch, do some more shopping and see a movie. How's that for a day on the town?
