Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater

What are you during this memorial weekend?

It’s been a few years, but I still remember my visit to Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater in rural Pennsylvania. And I arrived on the Friday evening of memorial weekend.

For those who don’t know, Fallingwater is a house that was partially built over a waterfall on Bear Run. The house was designed by a famous architect, Frank Lloyd Wright, and built in 1935 as a weekend home for the family that owned Kaufmann’s Department Store.

Guests are not allowed to take pictures inside the home, but trust me that it’s worth the trip. I loved the home; I was amazed by how creative and forward thinking Frank Lloyd Wright was for his time.

If you want to visit, you must book a tour in advance; they are available March 9th through December 31st, except Wednesdays and some holidays. For a basic guided tour, the cost is $30 per adult and $18 for kids ages 6 – 12. Children must be at least six years old and be accompanied by an adult. Unfortunately this is not the most family-friendly location. But I plan to take my son when he is old enough. Are you planning your trip now?
