Back in 1893, Hyde Park played host to the World's Columbian Exposition. Today, it's home to one of the most prestigious colleges in the country, one of the best museums and a happening restaurant scene. The neighborhood's gorgeous architecture makes its rich history quite salient. Hyde Park is accessible by way of bus, Green Line, Metra or a quick cruise down Lake Shore Drive. Head to the beautiful South Side 'hood and enjoy all of the culture and entertainment that it has to offer. Here's the best of the neighborhood.
