Obscura Day 2016: The Chicago Pedway Morning Tour

Share in the culture and community of the urban indoors.

The Pedway Tour will lead guests through a fascinating urban space - the (mostly) heated walkways that run nearly 40 downtown blocks under Chicago's Loop. The Pedway is more than just a series of hallways, it's a city under a city. It's not about shops or stores, it's an urban link that connects commuters, tourists, construction workers, train engineers, conference-goers and all of the people who live both in and around it.

But it's not all just Pedway on this tour! We'll also be making stops at Macy's (Marshall Fields) and the Cultural Center, two of Chicago's prettiest buildings. From there, we'll take just a few steps and traipse through the depths of the train systems that run underneath Millennium Park. There will even be a mid-tour bar break. 

This is a joint program with Chicago Elevated. If your Obscura Day morning is already booked, you're welcome to join us for the afternoon tour
