Hyde Park Tours

A prominent Chicago neighborhood and public space, Hyde Park is an area full of historic sites and museums. It is also the home of the University of Chicago, and has seen more attention recently as the former residence of President Barack Obama.

When the neighborhood was established in 1853, it was the first suburb of the rapidly growing city. It remains known for its architecture, culture, and open-air spaces. Of particular note is the Museum of Science and Industry (great for families,) and the historic Robie House designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The museum is the largest science museum in the Western Hemisphere.

Two scenic parks include Promotory Point, with great views of the Chicago skyline, and Jackson Park, a natural space with a small Japanese Garden. Hyde Park has also become known as one of the best dining and shopping spots in the city, with independent bookstores, street fairs, and farmers markets.

Practical Info

The Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago is located south of the Loop, on the shores of Lake Michigan. From Wacker Drive, you can catch the no. 6 Jeffrey Express bus that takes you to Hyde Park in about thirty minutes. You can also opt for the Metra Electric Train’s South Chicago Line, or alternatively, call for a taxi (around $15 each way.) Hyde Park is known for being one of the safest neighborhoods in the city.
