One of the fantastic things about Chicago’s downtown is its underside consisting of hidden streets, train stations, and pedestrian tunnels. It’s filled with innovative and interesting design features you won’t find in any other city, and much of it has its roots from more than a century ago!

Do you know who appreciates Chicago’s underbelly? Rats! These fascinating creatures have a lot in common with Chicago: they’re scrappy, they’re adaptable, they’re resilient, and their fates are thoroughly interconnected.

Underground Chicago (Plus Rats!) is a fun, one-of-a-kind tour experience where you’ll explore an underground labyrinth discovering features people rarely notice and the stories behind them. Along the way, you’ll hear lots of surprising RAT FACTS that will likely give you a new appreciation for these critters.

I hope you can join for this unique tour experience showcasing Chicago’s infrastructure and urban wildlife!
