Discovering The Chicago Pedway: One Of Chicago's Best Kept Secrets

Posted by Leila Zammatta on Friday, February 23rd, 2018 at 10:23am.

One of the many reasons we love living in Chicago is the fact that nearly everything downtown is closely connected and pretty easy to get to - even in the winter or stormy weather! In fact, if you're lucky enough to live or work in a building connected to the Pedway, you can access many of the things you need - or just want - without ever having to go outside.

What's more, many of the buildings in our favorite neighborhood - Lakeshore East - are connected directly to the Pedway. And since it covers almost forty city blocks and connects over fifty buildings in the Loop and Lakeshore East, you can cover a ton of ground without having to deal with any kind of inclement weather, which is a major bonus during the winter. And it connects to the Metra stations and the CTA underground, so it's useful for a commute. The Pedway also has convenience stores, casual restaurants, and useful things like dry cleaners and pharmacies. And of course, there's Starbucks on the route. Plus it's connected to the Macy's on State Street - so you can visit Chicago's largest department store without stepping outside!

Here's the official map for all your Pedway adventures.
