Chicago Architecture Tour

Ray and and I are in Chicago and we were very happy to discover that the annual Open House Chicago tour happen to coincide with our visit. This tour opens to the public many of Chicago’s most fabulous places for free. 

Yesterday we went to about fifteen buildings in downtown Chicago, and today we saw homes in Oak Park (including Frank Lloyd Wright’s home and workshop and Hemingway’s birthplace), toured several on Prairie Avenue, once the most exclusive street in Chicago, and also saw the Robie House, which is near the University of Chicago campus. Needless to say, we are two pooped pups. Today alone my step counter indicates we have walked eight miles. 

Here are a few photos, but many places didn’t allow indoor photos so this is not a great representation. Suffice it to say, we both love Chicago and will be returning again next year to hit more of the endless open houses. This has been a wonderful art vacation!
