What You'll Get

The Original Taste of the Pedway Tour begins at 10am every other Thursday at 111 East Wacker Drive. This 3-hour, small-group walking tour combines an exploration of the Pedway, great stories featuring Chicago history and architecture, trivia games, prizes and stops at some of downtown Chicago’s most delicious eateries. It’s a delectable introduction to the Windy City.

After your meet your guide, begin the tour by building up a healthy appetite on a 45-minute stroll around the Pedway, Chicago’s subterranean network of tunnels, concourses, and other pathways designed to keep locals cozy during the harsh winter months. As you go, you’ll see plenty of famous sights — including the Chicago Cultural Center, Macy’s (a National Historic Monument), and City Hall. Your guide will also keep you entertained with exciting stories and trivia competitions.

As for the nibbles: your first stop will be at Snarf’s, where you’ll try the famous chicken mambo spicy chili. Next, you’ll head to Millennium Station for a bite of irresistible Chicago Kernel popcorn.

Then, chow down on some special sandwiches at InField’s, located in the lower level of Macy’s, and finish up with a taste of their famous brownie. From there, it’s on to Which Wich, where the caprese sandwich is king.

There are two more stops on the tour — Starfruit Café, where frozen kefir is the order of the day, and M Burger, which specializes in cheeseburgers and milkshakes — before the 3-hour walk concludes at the James R. Thompson Center. You’re sure to come away well-versed in Chicago lore — and well-fed, too.
