Great trip today, everybody! Thanks to Q for organizing it!
Hopefully, the Chicago trip will go as well (and have weather as perfect!)
So, without further adieu, here
are the architectural sites my dad and I have picked out.
This is for the weekend of October 19th and 20th.
As you can see, most of the sites are the south and west sides of the city. If you click on each point on the map, there is a link to the description of the site and it's noted if they aren't open both days.
We're still working out the restaurants we'd go to for the neighborhoods. If anyone has any suggestions, please do share them. If anyone has strong feelings about any of the sites, share that as well! ETA: To be clear, we don't expect to go to all of those sites- we will be picking and choosing.
The sites that aren't open both days are closed on Sunday. The Robie House (Frank Lloyd Wright house) is open both days, but just for their normal tours on Saturday and only for Open House Chicago on Sunday. I believe that would mean there is a fee to go in on Saturday: $15 adult, $12 student and senior (65+), but none on Sunday. If we want to go to the Robie House, I'll confirm the details about that.
