Airports can feel stifling sometimes. If you have some time before your flight, we recommend taking this 2.2km airside circular walk to shake those legs and have a look around. En route, you'll pass the Thomson Reuters Art Gallery (Concourse C), an arts centre which shows changing exhibitions and offers a quiet area with comfy leather chairs.
The loop walk: Start in Terminal 1 (Lindbergh), Concourse G, at the end of the Mall. Walk past G gates then take a left at Gate G17, and go over the long footbridge to Concourse C. Then, take the escalator down to the left and walk back towards The Mall via the C gates.
If you have a layover of three hours or more, consider visiting the Mall of America, the largest shopping centre in the United States. Allow 15 minutes on the LRT each way, plus walking time and security screening on your layover. The mall boasts play zones, cinemas, and an aquarium alongside traditional shopping and dining.
Take LRT to ‘Mall of America’ transit stop.
This observation deck is one of the last of its kind in the United States. This quiet area is where airport and airline staff go to get away from the busy airport, but it is open to the public as well.
To get there, walk down the hallway to Concourse D past the Northern Lights Grill. When the hallway opens up into the gate area, turn left and look for the staircase next to Travel Express. Head up the stairs to arrive at the observation deck.
