On the Chicago Pedway tour, we will be indoors for most of the tour navigating and exploring the Chicago Pedway System. The Pedway is a series of mostly indoor tunnels, bridges, and paths throughout downtown Chicago.
Construction of this labyrinth began in 1951 to simply connect the Red and Blue line subway/'L' train stops. Now it connects over 50 buildings, 40 blocks, and 5 miles of pathways.
While on this tour, we will see Chicago's famous architecture while peering out of the windows of intricate lobbies, amazing examples of art, and we'll discover some of the best "secret-eats" in the city- all while enjoying the comfort of the temperature regulated pathways!
