Minneapolis: Skyway Walking Tour with Drinks

1. Minneapolis: Skyway Walking Tour with Drinks

Embark on a tour of Minneapolis' famous Skyway system, connecting dozens of shopping centers, hotels, theaters, and other local staples. Whether the temperature is below freezing or blazing hot, take advantage of this original way to travel from building to building and get to know the city. Meet your guide outside the famed Guthrie Theater - they'll be holding a blue umbrella - and learn about the nearby Mississippi, which is part of where Minneapolis gets its name, stemming from the Dakota word “Mni” for water and the Greek “polis” for city. Start your walk at the Guthrie Theater, then stroll alongside the Mill City Ruins. Be introduced to the city's history as you find unexpected routes. Before moving on, sit down with your tour guide for a coffee. Enjoy an opportunity to share what brought you on the tour and receive advice about visiting the Mall of America, the capital city of St Paul, or the Minnesota Northwoods. Get recommendations for hidden bars, secret cafes, and bike paths. Continue exploring the city’s famed Skyways, stretching for 9.5 miles. Avoid the cold or hot weather by following the lead of a local, with knowledge of which tunnels are open every day. Come across a variety of businesses and popular buildings as you weave your way through the system. End up in the Warehouse District, now rebranded as Minneapolis’ North Loop. Immerse yourself in a newly-gentrified neighborhood where million-dollar condos sit next to hipster breweries, world-famous restaurants, and lots of dog walkers. After learning the full history of the city, toast to a great day with a beer in hand and ask any lingering questions before leaving with a newfound appreciation for this city.
