"The South Side: Hyde Park" Hyde park Tip by sambarnett

Hyde park, Chicago: 3 reviews and 3 photos

Favorite thing: Hyde Park is Chicago’s intellectual capital, anchored by the University of Chicago. The popular Museum of Science and Industry is the big draw (and a surviving rememnant of the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition), there are plenty of better things to do around here including Frank Lloyd Wright's masterpiece the Robie House and the amazing Fountain of Time statue on the southeast corner of Washington Park. The best way to reach Hyde Park is by Metra or South Shore train.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
