Half Day Oak Park tour – pick an option: walking or driving – $495

Join me as we get out of the Loop to explore the suburb of Oak Park and admire the buildings designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Available by foot and public transportation, or I can rent a car & pick you up from your downtown Chicago hotel.

Did you know that Oak Park, IL, is home to the world’s largest collection of Frank Lloyd Wright-designed buildings and houses?

Oak Park was first settled in 1835 and later incorporated in 1902. After the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, people fled the city to build in the suburbs. Rapid growth & development was prompted by railroads and streetcars connecting the village to jobs in nearby Chicago.

Just due west of the city, Oak Park is a lovely half-day excursion definitely worth adding to your itinerary, especially if you are a FLW fan.

Let’s check out some of the most beautiful buildings by FLW that put Oak Park on the map!

Thank you! A portion of each tour cost will be donated to My Block My Hood My City
