This is my 6th or 7th time in Chicago and I never knew the Pedway existed. It’s a bustling underground pedestrian world that keeps you out of the elements. You can go from Millennium Park to Macy’s in minutes.

I had a map of the Pedway, but it certainly didn't detail the fact that some sections are closed on the weekends (probably holidays too), making other sections totally inaccessible from underground. It was also complicated to figure out where to enter and which way...More

The pedway can be used only as a covered way to move from one place to another. Various maps of it can be found online with a quick internet search. However, visitors and locals with a sense of adventure or an interest in city planning...More
