TripAdvisor Chicago Elevated
The Pedway Tour is a must for visitors and even Chicago residents alike. Several times a week a lovely local Chicago lady will lead you through widely unknown but perfectly open, perfectly clean and perfectly safe walkways between downtown high-rises. The good lady, Margaret Hicks, knows so much about Chicago and she’s so full of enthusiasm about sharing that knowledge that just listening to her is already a pleasant experience. Much of it is about the interesting history of Chicago and about the splendid architecture of that fascinating city. The tour takes about 1 ½ hours, but not all of that is walking. Much of it is just listening and looking. There are also lots of restrooms on the way. And at the end you are surrounded by restaurants. We sampled the Atwood Café at 1 W. Washington and had one of the best salmons ever. A touch pricey but delicious.
Go for it. It may be one of the better tours you ever get on.
