Exterior view of fallingwaters southwestern pennsylvania

View of the falls.

A trip to western Pennsylvania isn’t complete without a drive through the countryside and a visit to one of the many landmarks in the region.

My husband and I had a rare afternoon kid-free and took a drive to Fallingwater, a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed house that is built over a waterfall and nestled in a wooded area. The house is the only major Wright-designed house to open to the public with its furnishings, artwork, and setting intact.

We didn’t actually enter the house on our visit; instead we hiked the grounds surrounding Fallingwater (OK, and peeked in some of the windows to see the house). House tours are $20 in advance ($23 on site), and tours of the grounds are $8.
