We were very disappointed to find out they were no longer giving tours. We did meet one of the grandsons who was very nice but shared with us that they are no longer touring.

Good for a rainy day activity. Becoming shoddy but has interesting history. Unfortunately the house and grounds have been allowed to deteriorate.

You have to drive 10-15 minutes south on Route 5 from I-70 to find this house. Don't despair. Look for the house on the left soon after entering Bel Aire. You'll see an old peeling sign on your left with the driveway soon after. I...More

Help me narrow down wineries (7 Replies)
I have 2.5 days to vsisit wineries. Here is my list. Can you let me know if there are any wineries that I should avoid. If I had to cut 1 or 2 off the list which ones would you choose. Are there any wineries that do not require a reservation? How many wineries would you say you could visit in a 6 hour period? Thanks!!!!

Good place to stay near Devon Avenue (Indian section :-) (15 Replies)
I am taking my parents (visiting from India) to show them the south Asian section of Devon Ave. (between Ravenswood Ave. and California Ave. ?) What is a good place to stay? Is that safe neighborhood to stay for a couple of nights? I'll have a rental car, so I don't mind staying further away, if needed. Is that area on any type of public transit? Thanks. Aloke PS: Any good web site to find out about Indian cultural activities, concerts, in Chicago?

Thanks!! This is for the Memorial Day weekend, so the availability is not that good. O'Hare area has a lot of hotel choices (and seems to connect to Devon Ave). It is about 10 miles from what I can tell, from the Indian area. Is that a good choice? I'll drive and park at Devon Ave if that is a safe neighborhood... Is it? Is street parking an option there? Sometimes, neighborhoods have restrictions that visitors don't know about. I don't want my rental to be towed or broken into!! ...More

Wanted to write a follow-up to my original post, tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g33107-i555-k27880… The May trip was postponed to this month, but the suggestions from syrahgirl, mini, Forestvillian, 21Jelly, Puter were never forgotten.
