Living where your feet don’t touch the ground

It is weeks like this last one when the wind chill was low enough to close schools that make me dream of living on the downtown Minneapolis skyway system… the largest continuous skyway system in the world, spanning 8 miles and 69 blocks.

Some say it looks like a hamster maze, but it is pure bliss to leave home without your coat, hat, mittens and scarf when the temperatures are in the frigid zone. Imagine going to work or the gym, shopping, picking up groceries, going out to dinner or attending live theater with your feet never touching the ground!


We helped an excited first-time homebuyer purchase a downtown condo on the skyway system last summer… the skyway system is also awesome on hot, humid summer days or during a downpour!

Imagine walking out to your own balcony in the heart of city landmarks… and walking off your elevator onto the skyway system… priceless!
