Falling Water

Standard

I was so excited to find out on our Honeymoon the hotel we booked in Pennsylvania was only a short distance from Falling Water. The next morning, we drove into the forest and behold! The wonder that is Frank Lloyd Wright’s masterpiece!

Alright, we didn’t go on the tour of the house. Sadly. We didn’t have the time. But! We did get to walk around the grounds, which was awesome, and gave us more than one vantage point for photos. Access to the grounds was $8 per person. I found that more than worth it, since there was a little visitor center, we could take all the pictures our little hearts desired, and we could wander through the gorgeous trees and long as we wanted (well, as long as the grounds were open).

(Please excuse the gentleman enjoying his tour, and simultaneously ruining my photo. Oh well, at least he’s having a good time…?)

I wish we would have had the time for a tour. However, as you can see, we got all kinds of up close and personal. The general house tour is $25 a person, in case you were wondering, and children under six aren’t allowed. It’s also closed on Wednesdays. The house also has some mobility issues, so if you’re contemplating a visit, check out their website before you make any final plans.

See? All sorts of different views of the house are available with only access to the grounds.

If you’re one for art, architecture, or nature, I would definitely add Falling Water onto your travel bucket list. It’s beautiful.

Maybe I just like to see really famous things with my own eyeballs, but I loved it!
