Minneapolis Skyways

No, they’re not in the sky, but they are considered a neighborhood to many. Just one flight above ground- connecting more than seven miles of downtown in climate- controlled bliss. When the temperature plummets or the rain falls, ditch the coat in the hotel room.

Explore downtown Minneapolis through more than 70 blocks of glass- enclosed skyways. They create a lively thoroughfare filled with specialty shops, restaurants, services, and, yes, even an annual golf tournament. Walk from one end of the city to the other yet never set foot outside! “ Where are all the people?” you ask. Look up.
You may be missing something.

Downtown sites and attractions connected via skyway include:
-State Theatre: Home to Broadway shows and other traveling productions.
-City Center and Gaviidea Shopping Center: Housing Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus.
-Target Center: Home to the Minnesota Timberwolves, Minnesota Lynx as well as world- class concerts.
-Marshall Field’s: The Company’s flagship store.
-Block e: Entertainment and retail complex, including Game Works and Hard Rock Café. -Minneapolis Convention Center: Hosting dozens of public events yearly and holding up to 50,000 conventioneers at a time.
-Plus 3,500 downtown hotel rooms including Le Meridien, Hilton Minneapolis & Towers and Hyatt Regency Minneapolis.
