Getting Around Downtown Oak Park

Around Downtown Oak Park

The northern half of Downtown Oak Park lies within the Frank Lloyd Wright Historic District, a remarkable area where you can see several of the famous architect’s landmark designs. Unity Temple, Frank W. Thomas House, Harrison Young House, and Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio are all downtown, as is the Ernest Hemingway Birthplace Museum. Aside from its historic buildings, Downtown Oak Park is known for its events and festivals that showcase local performers, artists, restaurants, winemakers, brewers, and crafters.

The cost of living in this sought-after suburb’s lively downtown is considerably higher than the state and national averages, but this is mainly due to housing. This is a great area to look for a stylish suburban estate if you’ve got the budget for it. However, buyers in the market for a condo will find a wide range of prices here.

Oak Park is served by Elementary School District 97 and High School District 200. Oak Park and River Forest High School is highly rated and excels at college and career readiness. William Beye Elementary School consistently achieves high test scores and shows great academic progress. Downtown Oak Park is also home to several private schools and specialized schools for music and the arts.

Downtown Oak Park’s historic sites and architectural landmarks are a big draw for the city. The area also encompasses several parks that host special events and everyday recreation. Uncork Illinois Wine Festival and Oaktoberfest both bring live music and tasty spirits downtown, while Oak Park Festival Theatre puts on plays year-round. For a movie night, check out the restored Lake Theatre.
