"Hyde Park" Hyde park Tip by goingsolo

Hyde park, Chicago: 3 reviews and 3 photos

by goingsolo

Favorite thing: Hyde Park is an area south of the downtown loop. It has the distinction of being Chicago's first suburb and the most racially diverse of the city. Here you will find the University of Chicago, the Museum of Science and Industry, several other smaller museums, a pretty park and a promenade along Lake Michigan.

This is a great area for a daytrip and for visiting the Museum of Science, the University Campus or for just walking along the tree-lined neighborhood sidewalks, admiring the architecture. Because Hyde Park is so diverse, there are also a number of ethnic restaurants in the area.
