“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”
Hyde Park is one of the hidden jewels of Chicago, featuring Barack Obama's Kenwood home, the Court Theatre, and the DuSable Museum of African American History. The University of Chicago's youthful, diverse student population has helped turn Hyde Park into a center for entertainment, food, and special events. Enjoy brunch at Valois Restaurant or Asian fusion fare at Chant, both favorites of the U of C scene. Hyde Park is serviced by the Red Line, so visitors staying downtown can easily access this southern suburb.
