Hyde Park is home to many of the city's most historic institutions, including the University of Chicago, the Museum of Science and Industry and numerous Frank Lloyd Wright homes. But take a short walk off the beaten path, and visitors will find the neighborhood features some of the most beautiful green spaces in the city as well.
Promontory Point is a popular destination for locals as this man-made peninsula extends out into Lake Michigan, providing spectacular views of the Downtown Chicago skyline. Jackson Park features a wide variety of landscapes including a lagoon, gorgeous skyline views and a Japanese garden.
As the 1893 host of the World's Columbian Exposition, Hyde Park is still a destination for unique and varied attractions like Court Theater, Jackson Park Golf Course, Midway Plaisance Ice Skating Rink and a large number of independent book stores.
A recent expansion of the restaurant scene along 53rd St. and Harper Ct. draws neighborhood locals and Chicagoans from all over the city.
