Ranked among the best TV shows of all time, The West Wing (1999-2006) is set primarily in the West Wing of the White House, where offices of the president and senior personnel are located. 

But occasionally, the series' storylines took place elsewhere—even in the Midwest.

In this virtual tour with Chicago Movie Tours, hear about that time The West Wing travelled to the Chicago suburbs to film an episode. With the help of our HD video camera, you'll walk where the cast and crew did. And along the path, you'll learn about a former mobster hangout and Chicago's role in the Underground Railroad.
