You can get to the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio or any restaurants, stores, groceries, trains to Chicago, all within 5 minutes of walking!!

Do not park on the street during the day for longer than 2 hours and do not park on the street overnight without using the Passport Parking app or the public garage. You will get a ticket if you don't follow these rules. *Metra Train *Uber Taxi - you can ask me for my friend's number for a ride to the airport or rides around town. *Buses are also available My loveable golden doodle dog lives upstairs but she does not have access to your space.
