The several houses open on this weekend are usually well worth the wait. Some houses are not as interesting on the inside as the outside would make you believe. This is often the result of lack-luster decoration.

We really enjoyed the FLW walking tour. You could see the evolution of his design and it was surprising how prolific he was.

The self-guided tour was a great way to learn about 10 houses he designed. Gorgeous neighborhood. Amazing homes. We did this in about 45 minutes just prior to a guided tour of his home and studio.
