Hyde Park

A Chicago Neighborhood

Summary

Home to The University of Chicago and — for many years — President Barack Obama, the South Side’s Hyde Park is the intellectual heart of Chicago. Its red brick and shaded residential streets feel a world away from Millionaire Mile, but are still in close proximity to some of Chicago’s premier cultural attractions: UChicago’s Smart Museum, the Renaissance Society, and the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Robie House. There is a coterie of college-oriented restaurants and cafes, as well as two of Chicago’s best bookstores: The Seminary Co-op and the original Powell’s Books, whose name you might recognize from a visit to Portland.
