Loopin’ around Chicago takes you to the heart of the Windy City but jump aboard the Green Line and you’ll find yourself in the not-so-tourist-trodden suburb of Oak Park. It was the home of noted American architect Frank Lloyd Wright and his evolution of an entire neighborhood is but one offering in this small suburb.
Visitors can stroll down Lake Street and see the Art Deco era still evident in the offices and shops, and the quaint Lake Street cinema. There are restaurants to suit every taste and I was quite happy with Khyber Pass for an Indian lunch.
You can also drop by the birthplace of Ernest Hemingway and shop till you drop away from the high end prices of Magnificent Mile on Michigan Avenue.
