Minneapolis Skyway History Tour
Guided tour of the Downtown Minneapolis skyway system, led by urban geography PhD and writer Bill Lindeke. The tour is a two (2) mile walk through the skyways featuring many of the most interesting, noteworthy, and architecturally compelling skyways in Downtown Minneapolis.
The Downtown Minneapolis skyway system is the largest in the world. It dates to 1962 and has become the most unique feature of Minneapolis' downtown. This tour will explore the origins and development of the downtown skyway system, including the birthplace of the skyways, the longest skyway, the dullest skyway, the skyway with the most street life, the newest skyway, the weirdest skyway, the most architecturally befuddling skyway, the most beautiful skyway, the skyway through the jail, and more.
This is my most popular tour! The tour is mostly indoors, but will go outdoors for a few blocks at the start of the tour.
