Chicago Pedway Tours

The elements do not stop in-the-known Chicagoans from shopping and dining at some of the city’s best establishments, and now it won’t stop you either. The Chicago Pedway is a veritable underground city. The labyrinthine underground walkway connects many of the city’s most established businesses.  The tunnels, and bridges connect high-rise buildings with retail stores, restaurants, bars, hotels, and even a few train stations.

The Chicago Pedway, or the Downtown Pedestrian Walkway System, links more than 40 blocks in the Central Business District, or about five miles. Construction on the Pedway began in 1951 and was initially planned as a way to train stations on the Red and Blue subway lines. Now the Pedway serves tens of thousands of people every day. It’s possible to explore Chicago for an entire day without stepping outside. 

Practical Info

In order to make the best use of the Pedway, consider bringing a map. Many are available online and at businesses around the city. The Pedway itself is an interesting attraction with a unique history. There are many options for Pedway walking tours to learn more about this unique transit system.
