Explore Hyde Park

Hyde Park is home of the prestigious University of Chicago and the Museum of Science and Industry. This once prosperous hotel and lakeside resort area on Chicago's south side is quickly returning to its former glory with new residential development and scenic waterfront landscapes. The breathtaking sliver of shoreline along Lake Michigan is usually speckled with walkers, joggers, bikers and stroller-pushers, while the museum grounds teem with visitors from around the world. The rest of Hyde Park accommodates residents and students with a diverse mix of restaurants, bookshops, historic landmarks and several seasonal events, bike tours and neighborhood street festivals. Throughout Hyde Park are stunning vintage buildings and treasured architectural gems, some designed by famous architects such as Frank Lloyd Wright and Mies van der Rohe.
