Some of the tunnels have nice architecture on the outside too. It is kind of easy to get disoriented. Even when the weather is nice, it’s a good way to get around especially for shopping. Some stores are easier to see from inside that outside.

There is something fundamentally social about the skyway. Yes, it is there because of the weather, but the fact that the city and the developers of the downtown buildings agreed to build a network of bridges and a virtual mall 20 feet up is a...More

Wow I loved walking around the Skyway, some lovely places to eat and drink. Shame that Macy's has closed but there is still a lot to see.

This was a great way to get from point A to B in hot or cold weather. We found it particularly helpful this last weekend when the temperature was in the 90s. We even hooked up with the Skyway from the downtown CVS Pharmacy to...More

Was able to use the skyway system during several visits downtown. You can get around several city blocks near the Nicollette Mall without having to go outside. Great method to get around during foul or wintery weather

The skyway system is a nice amenity for any who are downtown during times when the famous Twin Cities weather starts to roar. Note that some sections close down earlier than others. This also creates a two level walking environment, separate from street level. I...More

It's a great system to use to keep you out of the weather/elements but the hours are limited. It's especially difficult to maneuver on weekends or after events.

I don't recall ever having the skyway closed. Since we no longer have a retail storel (Daytons/Macy's), there would be no reason to close it. The rest of the system is outside of any businesses and they have "gates" of... More

I would suggest getting on google maps to figure out which bus stop/bus route will be the closest to you. I believe a 742 or 747 are Plymouth express routes that go into downtown(make sure you know the time of the last route... More

You can use the light rail system, for about $2 each way. You can catch it at the airport and if goes to Target Filed which is just a short walk to downtown.
