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
