Chicago is arguably friendlier, cleaner, and better value than, New York City. Chicago sets out to dazzles-that’s the city’s mantra. One of the most vocal fans of the city’s Pedway system will be the first to admit Chicago has a messy basement. Tour guide Margaret Hicks, is all things Chicago. She started her tour business in 2009, and she’d like to think her Pedway tour, the underground world of Chicago — the original — has helped spread the word. For instance, “It’ll save you one day,” she said. The “mostly clean, mostly heated” tunnel system will save you from a brutal Midwest winter. It will save you from biting wind and slushy streets, from a spring rainstorm and a summer heat wave. It will save you time, when you need to cross a Downtown street where a parade has just rolled in. So, on your next visit to the “Windy City” check out Hicks’ 90-minute Pedway tours. It’s her only tour that attracts as many Chicagoans as it does tourists, she tailors each one to her audience.
