Hyde Park



While some out-of-towners might not associate upscale with the city's South Side, Hyde Park proves them wrong. Home to the prestigious University of Chicago, Hyde Park is lined with historic mansions including two architectural legends: Frank Lloyd Wright's Robie House and Heller House. The neighborhood is also home to Chicago's most famous resident who doesn't actually live in the city. President Barack Obama owns a home here.

If you're traveling with children, Hyde Park houses one place that will keep them occupied and intrigued for hours and hours: the Museum of Science and Industry. The biggest science museum in the Western Hemisphere hosts rotating exhibits, and visitors can catch in-the-round movies in the museum's Omnimax Theater. For a more subjective experience, check out the collection at the Hyde Park Art Center. Once you've had your fill of the indoors, head to 57th Street Beach, which is a much more laid back alternative to the sandy shores on the North Side.
