Underground Chicago: Pedway Tour

Tour runs Wednesday and Friday. Book now!

Take a tour of Chicago’s Pedway system, a network of underground tunnels that allow pedestrians to pass from one end of the Loop to the other. We’ll go above ground periodically to view some special Chicago sights.

Our tour begins in the lobby of the Swissotel (325 E. Wacker Dr.) with a brief overview of the Pedway system.  We then descend into the Pedway and begin our journey to the Cultural Center, passing through a series of hotels, office buildings, restaurants and a train station along the way.  After a brief “above ground” tour of the Cultural Center and its famous Tiffany Dome, we return to the Pedway for a short walk to Macy’s department store where we view the famous Tiffany ceiling from two unique perspectives, then stop by the store’s iconic Walnut Room.

We return to the Pedway and follow it west to the Richard J Daley Civic Center where we ascend to the plaza for a visit to the Picasso sculpture and also view the Chicago Temple and it’s Sky Chapel, one of the world’s tallest church buildings.  We return to the Pedway for a brief walk to City Hall and Marriage Court and then a short walk outside to the L Stop at Wells and Washington Streets.

A quick train ride to the other side of the Loop takes us to Wabash and Adams where we stroll past the origin/terminus of Route 66, enjoy the Art Institute’s lion statues and journey through one last stretch of Pedway to Millennium Park to view the famous Cloud Gate sculpture (aka, The Bean), Lurie Gardens and Crown Fountain.
