America's Best Airports

No. 6 Minneapolis–St. Paul International Airport (MSP)
MSP airport loses points for flight delays (ah, those winters), its location relative to downtown, and an often-slow check-in process. The upside is that it scored No. 1 for shopping, with more than 50 options including Authors Bookstore. The airport also came in at No. 2 for food; French Meadow Bakery & Café, for instance, serves organic dishes. Another perk: two kids’ play areas (one each in Terminal 1 and 2) with child-scale airplanes and control towers with slides.
