What people are saying:

If you don't have time to visit Oak Park and the Frank Lloyd Wright buildings there, you can still see one of the best examples of his iconic Prairie Homes within the city limits, in the Hyde Park neighborhood around the University of Chicago. Restored to its original glory, this house feels magical once you step inside - from the street, everything is hidden from view. Guided tours are worth your time.

    Beautiful

    While traveling through Chicago, I was staying up in Forrest Park and went for a tour of the Robie house. Was amazed also by how many houses designed by Wright are in the vicinity. I had a nice walk.
