Although the ground may be covered in snow several months of the year, getting around in central Minneapolis is a cinch thanks to the Skyway. Connecting most of downtown by covered footbridges, the Skyway makes it easy to head from a Minnesota Timberwolves game to a late dinner at Fogo de Chao without having to pull on three more layers.
Minneapolis is also the perfect town to indulge in some retail therapy. Luckily Nicollet Mall is connected by the Skyway as well, giving you 11 blocks of shopping bliss right in downtown Minneapolis. Serious shopaholics will want to head 11 miles outside of the city to the Mall of America. One of the largest malls in the country, the Mall of America features more than 500 stores spread across 4,200,000 square feet.
If you happen to be in Minneapolis in the summer, don't miss the Minneapolis Concerts in the Parks featuring more than 200 free -- yes, free -- performances of everything from jazz to bluegrass at picturesque Lake Harriet. Speaking of lakes, Minneapolis' Chain of Lakes byway district lets you explore the city's many waterways by foot, car or canoe -- that is, as long as the lake isn't frozen!
