    To find the secret observation deck, enter Concourse D and walk past the Quiznos and Northern Lights Grill. Take the stairs up on your left. The deck is usually deserted. Enjoy!

    Concourse E is best for napping/sleeping. Ride the elevator across from "Meadows" up to the third floor, and enter the 'quiet' traveler area. Don't bother with the airline clubs as they are small.

    One of my favorite airports in the U.S. Grab a Caribou coffee and visit the Minnesota store. Very tech savvy with iPads in most of the restaurants. So many stores...Uffda!...don't miss your flight!

    Ive been to many airports in the U.S. and this one is fancy! Very nice restaurants , salad bars, and a variety of healthy choices nSht! Nice airport to have a lay over in. I'm sad my layover is short

    A really nice, clean and quiet airport. Lots of food choices and it's really easy to get from the airport to downtown Minneapolis- just hop on the blue line tram! Costs $3 and will make it in 25mins.

    Come for the planes, stay for the retail! MSP does an amazing job of integrating retail and dining into the footpaths in a complementary way. It is just a fun place to walk around. And shop. And eat.

    One of my favorite airports to go through when moving through the midwest. Everything is clean and easy and even the lines move very fast for the amount of people that come through. A major hub.

    The G gates areas are really relaxing, comfortable, and have healthy food options that are quick. The seating is clean and seats have tables with iPads and outlets. Great spot for a layover!

    One of nicest airports to travel to/through! There is plenty of helpful & cheerful people to assist you or greet you (well except TSA agents), plenty of exceptional concept restaurants, shopping etc

    If your traveling with pets, don't leave the building to walk them. Go to Costomer service and they will give you a key to a private pet area so you don't have to go back through security. Wonderful!

    Concourse G the most tech advanced in any US airport I've been to. iPads at every table to order food, drinks, coffee, play games or surf the net while you wait for your very delayed flight.

    To all those dudes whining about missing Delta connections... do you know that you can choose a later flight, right? Book a connecting flight that leaves in just 30/40 minutes at your own risk idiots!

    If y'all don't like Delta then why do you fly on that airline? I personally LOVE Delta! The people are always great and first class is outstanding! Their Air Club is fantastic too!

    Like the high tech facilities they provide. Order your food and drinks via ipad. They have so many plugs to help you charge your devices and let you use their ipads for free

    G terminal stripped of all chains and instead filled with fantastic, healthy local restaurants, microbrews, and Cibo Expresses. Surdyk's Flights in main terminal one of top 10 US airport destinations.

    In January or February, you land on top a 4-foot thick sheet of ice; may be a glacier of some type. Complimentary cross country skis when you get off the plane is a nice touch though.

    An amazing airport. The iPads at each seat throughout the airport were very convenient. We were able to order food from wherever we chose to sit.

    If you need to stop for a layover, MSP is probably the best place in the North to do so. Very clean, new, and electric sockets under the bar table. Finally, an airport for the 21st century.

    Pick up a coupon book at the airport information desk. While there and if you can, rent a bike or walk when the weather is warm, on one of the cities green-way's which are a blast.

    One of my favorite airports, but getting from one gate to another – depending on the gates – can be challenging if you have a tight connection. There are many food and retail options.

    Minneapolis does an excellent job of keeping the airport open even in the most averse conditions. Airport is huge. Their is a back connector at the end of the G gate.

    One of my favorite airports here in the U.S. Can't complain about the layout of the Terminals and they are easy to navigate. The restaurant "Chili's Too" in G Terminal is excellent.

    Delta's Concourse G may be the best airport terminal in America. Wait for your flight with a complimentary iPad to order drinks from.

    Welcome to Minnesota! If you're on layover enjoy wine and cheese at Surdyk, or organic sandwiches and desserts from french meadows- both examples of MSP good eats. Safe travels!

    This is one of the most awesome airports in the country to get hammered at. There are so many great and unique bars that it is almost a blessing if your flight is delayed. Explore, drink, and be merry

    Check-in online ahead of time and have your ticket sent to your mobile device. I skipped the long lines at the check-in counters and went straight to security. Win!

    Terminal G seems to have taken inspiration from Las Vegas, New Orleans, and Savannah in allowing open containers throughout the terminal. Grab a beer and wander around

    Simple planning makes the difference, get there early and grab a good seat and do some people watching. Takes the stress out of worrying about security delays. Don't sweat the small stuff!

    I learned today that different food areas play different types of music over the sound system. If you like hipster alternative tunes, relax and eat in terminal G15 gate area :-)

    Stretch out your legs at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport with their walking path. The 1.4 mile track leads you around the airport, and is easy to follow with green dots to stay on track.

    Use checkpoint 6 if you're looking for the shortest line. Also the new coffee shop at the end of G is good as well as Taglia/Custom Burgers at the beginning of G are awesome!

    Rental car goers beware! If landing around 11pm the rental car facility will most likely be closed by the time you get your bags (6am-11pm). no express pickups for any of the members programs either.

    Talked to an employee at the food court who overheard my convo with a friend- subway is way less expensive than the sandwiches at the Concourse G Food Court. Better deAl and say true!

    This is airport is so clean and technologically advanced. I stumbled off a red eye from lax and I was greeted by free notepads all around my gate. It was so pretty....and so convenient for passengers.

    Another tip said to take the tram thing to the gates to reduce your "carbon footprint". I say walk to your gate and reduce your waistline. Buy smaller shoes to reduce your carbon footprint.

    The TSA Pre checkpoint is #4 which is more than halfway along the drop off area at the terminal. (Checkpoint #1 is the first and so on). It's a very short walk regardless though.

    Surdyk's Flights was such a pleasant surprise tucked away in this Midwest airport! Amazing selection of wine, cheese and salumi. Will be the only place I eat at MSP on all future trips.
