Go to Fallingwater. The beauty begins even before you arrive at the home. The mountains along the drive provide some breath taking views in and of themselves. Especially now in the Fall with the crisp blue skies and ever changing tree colors.
You will be assigned a tour guide who takes groups of people through the home based on a time schedule. You can make advance reservations, or buy them upon arrival. Take some time to stroll through the gift shop for unique replicas and books on Frank Lloyd wright and some artsists who produce works in the same spirit.
The home is a real wonder when you consider the year in which it was built and the location of it in proximity to the falls and woods. It certainly speaks to Wright's genius. The tour guide we had provided information, but left us to ask questions that I had hoped would be part of the presentation. Such as woods used, why the small height of rooms...etc. As well, the home had been restored which was mentioned, but not information on how they took the time to ensure that nothing was changed during its' preservation. But ask as many questions as you want and you will not be disappointed.
Afterward we strolled down the paths in to the surrounding woods. Really quite beautiful.
I would rate this as a 5 simply for its' masterpiece...but I have rated as a 4 as an "attraction" more so of the limits of the tour guide...which could be hit or miss I suppose. BUT STILL GO!
