This fun "urban safari" unveils the fascinating backstory of Chicago's "secret weapon" against the elements -- the covered and heated Pedway (Pedestrian Walkway). The two-hour walking tour covers 80% of the Pedway's 40 blocks of tunnels, concourses, skyway bridges, shops, food courts and train stations, serving up historical tidbits and juicy lore on some of the city's more colorful characters.
