Pedway “Explorers” Tour
The Pedway (Pedestrian Walk-Way) spans nearly 5 miles in length and it is an assortment of underground corridors, building concourses, food courts, train stations and sky-bridges. It is the city’s secret weapon against the realities of Chicago’s harsh winter. During this “Urban Safari”, guests learn all about the history of the Pedway and by use of our special tour map, navigate nearly 2 and ¼ miles of this unique urban terrain. In addition, our tour guides take you to some interesting locales like City Hall, Chicago Cultural Center, Macy’s and many more. Along the way, guests hear interesting stories about Chicago’s past, present and future and revel in the stories of many of the city’s most colorful characters!
