On paper, Minneapolis is one city with a population of more than 375,000. But in reality it is more of a collection of neighborhoods, all connected but each with its own unique character.
The downtown area is home to a thriving business community, as well as one of the largest skyway systems in the nation. The eight-mile long skyway links 1,000 businesses, 4,000 hotel rooms and 2,000 condominiums, and is used by more than 200,000 individuals every day.
