Minneapolis is one of my top 10 skylines in the United States. I love the designs of the tallest buildings and beneath those giants there are some great older buildings as well. My aunt and uncle used to live in a condo tower in downtown Minneapolis and when I visited them I got to explore the downtown. I remember a great British restaurant down there, which was unusual to see but very good! Awesome skyline and cool city, not done justice by these pictures. 9.5/10

@BG918: You must be talking about Brit's Pub, on Nicollet Mall. I went there last summer, it is good.

i should correct my vote and give 9 pts. it's just a great skyline Minny has. So imagine one more vote for 9 pts and one less for 8.5

it's a powerhouse city, and a weird skyline. lots of buildings but most of them are kind of unattractive.

It's an impressive skyline... but too antiseptic and sterile for me.
