Most trips begin and end with a walk, and walking in Minneapolis is wonderful.

It takes only 20 minutes to cover a mile on foot and downtown Minneapolis is compact and pedestrian-friendly. The health benefits of walking are truly remarkable, so hit the sidewalk every day to live longer, reduce stress, and take in some much-needed fresh air.

  • A short walk to your office is the perfect way to finish a bus or rail commute
  • Stroll to work through the vibrant North Loop, East Town, Elliot Park or Loring Park neighborhoods and discover new shops and restaurants
  • Check out Street Eats vendors and food trucks, giveaways, and music at the Nicollet xChange, a sustainability marketplace with games, activities and more
  • Commute on foot via the beautiful Loring Greenway or traverse the art-adorned 3rd Avenue Sharon Sayles Belton Bridge
  • Discover the Mississippi River and Southeast Minneapolis across the magnificent Stone Arch Bridge
  • When the weather doesn’t cooperate, leave your raincoat at the office and take a trip in the 9-mile enclosed downtown skyway system
