Chicago - Loop to Robie House

Jump to last reply

I'm heading to Chicago tomorrow for the fourth time, but planning to visit the Hyde Park area for the first time. The main thing we want to do is to tour Robie House, and given that it's a holiday weekend, we're likely planning to buy tickets online today. Our flight gets into Midway at 10am, so I'm anticipating being at the hotel (Hotel Monaco on N. Wabash) by 11, hopefully checking in and getting some lunch before heading to Hyde Park. TaxiFareFinder estimates a cab fare at about $24 from our hotel to the Hyde Park area - does that sound about right to Chicagoans? That would be pretty pricy to get there and back, but the bus looks like it's about 45 minutes to an hour one way depending on how lost we get :) . Any tips on the Hyde Park area or transit to/from there would be greatly appreciated - I've read that Hyde Park should be fine but is near some neighborhoods we don't want to get lost in.
