Chicago Pedway Tour + wine & cheese!

The underground Chicago Walk is a tour through Chicago’s pedway, a little-known tunnel system in the heart of downtown Chicago. It may sound scary but fear not, the recently rehabbed tunnels are used by thousands of savvy locals every day. The pedway connects many of Chicago’s beloved landmarks, like Macy’s (Marshall Field’s), The Thompson Center, Block 37, The Daley Center, Millennium Park, City Hall and many more. Miles of new tunnels have been opened, with miles more in the works. Come explore the underground tunnels while sampling food at some of the unique restaurants, cafes and shops the pedway has to offer. You’ll sample artisan grilled cheese sandwiches, frozen kefir, traditional Thai cuisine, Garrett’s popcorn (a treat bag of their famous “Garrett’s Mix”), a wine tasting at Macy’s wine shop (Friday tours only) and a stop at Macy’s Candy Kitchen. The tour stops by the unexpected underground American Victorian stained glass art exhibit and ends in the Chicago Cultural Center, home to the world’s largest Tiffany dome glass ceiling. Give yourself some extra time after the tour — which is updated for winter to keep you inside and warm — to take in one or all of the Cultural Center’s free art exhibits. Note that meeting locations change frequently and you will be given the correct meeting location after you book a specific date.  Choose any Thursday or Friday tour date through February 1st.
