We live in Oak Park, IL and for us it is just a three block walk to the FLW studio. It is well worth the the trip to see where he did much of his work. The guides are very knowledgeable and give you a very accurate account of the studio and of his life, both professional and family. The walk along Forest Avenue after the studio tour is great also. There are examples of the prairie style architecture and also some wonderful Victorian homes to see. If you are really into learning about Frank Lloyd Wright, I would suggest reading the book Loving Frank by Nancy Horan. It is a fictional story but give you a feeling for the time in which Wright lived and the mores of that time. The studio tour last about an hour and then there is the gift shop which you should not miss.
