Minneapolis Skyways

The Minneapolis Skyway System is an interlinked collection of enclosed pedestrian footbridges that connect various buildings in Downtown Minneapolis enabling people to walk in a climate-controlled environment (which is GREAT when it's 15 below during the winter... or 90+ degrees during the summer). The extensive system is renowned as the largest continuous system in the world. It forms a network of pedestrian walkways that link sixty-nine full city blocks over seven miles!!

I have to admit it's pretty rad... you can pretty much get anywhere you want without going outside. It reminded me a bit of Hong Kong's underground MTR network.
