  A true masterpiece.
by MaosRedArmy

If you don't appreciate architecture, please move on to the next tip, as I would not want you to drive an hour or so out of Pittsburgh just to see another house in the woods.

But, for everyone else, if you make it to Pittsburgh, I highly recommend getting in a car and driving for about an hour to tour one of Frank Lloyd Wright's masterpieces - Fallingwater.

There really is no need for me to explain what to do there, but if you can't move around very well or are limited to a wheelchair, the tour could be a tough one, as there are several steep climbs (down and up) to get to the actual house. Going inside for a tour is only possible if you are walking.

I can not stress enough to MAKE RESERVATIONS before you go. Otherwise, you might get stuck looking at the house from the outside (not a bad view, but definitely not as nice as taking the tour).

Address: Mill Run, Pennsylvania
Directions: From Pittsurgh - Take Turnpike East (I-76) to Exit 91 (Donegal). Turn left on to Route 31. Go 2 miles to Route 381 South. Turn right on to 381 South and go 19 miles until you reach Fallingwater.
