This system is amazing! We were in town for the super bowl and were able to walk to all events at the convention center and the stadium without going outside. Amazing! And so easy to navigate!

As Minneapolis is freezing cold in the winter, the skyway system is a lifesaver! If you are visiting make sure you learn how to use it and do not venture out when not needed, unless you are wrapped up REALLY warm!

A lot has been written - just go - look at it, go through it (take a map) - stunning. Good food and shops (not great though)

This was such a great way to get around downtown during superbowl weekend. Easy to navigate, but there is a very helpful app to use specifically for navigating the Skyway system. Such a life-saver when the weather is dreadful.

We went to Mineapolis for Super Bowl 52. It was zero degrees and snowing, way too cold for me. We stayed downtown at the Radisson Blu. I knew the stadium was enclosed and would be warm, but to my surprise, we did not have to...More

We were in town for the Super Bowl, along with biting winds & bitter cold. The skyway made it possible to get from Point A to Point B without risk of frostbite. It allowed us to explore far more on foot than would have been...More

Most skyways follow the Uniform Skyway Hours: M-F 6:30 a.m. - 10 p.m. Sat 9:30 a.m. - 8 p.m. Sun Noon - 6 p.m. Watch for the blue signs. Some skyways may be open longer hours, some fewer.
