The Destination
From the ritzy hang it was in the roaring '20s to the neo-urban marvel it is today, Chicago's Prairie Historic District on the Near South Side is a neighborhood with a rich history and an even brighter future. Through the churn and change, age-old homes stand sturdy in the shadow of new high rises that pop up above the 19th-century mansions on Prairie Avenue. Here, artists lay claim to hip lofts on Printer's Row, while visitors meander the Lake Michigan waterfront, cruising convention centers, stadiums, and museums in this vibrant cultural center.

The Digs
Built in 1870, and promptly tested in (the Great Chicago) fire a year later, the Wheeler Mansion is a bastion of Chicago prestige and history—and a pretty one at that. Enjoy the best of this palatial boutique hotel's 19th-century French architecture in carefully restored rooms with queen beds, wireless Internet, a fireplace, mounted European art, and round-the-clock coffee and tea. High ceilings, deep green marble, hardwood floors polished to a sugary shine, and chocolate wooden furnishings give each suite an opulent feel.

Diversions
• Visit the mansions on Millionaire Row
• Sprawl out in the great green spaces of Northerly Island
• Tour the Glessner House, the 1880s residential masterpiece and muse for Frank Lloyd Wright
• Find inspiration at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago

  • "At the intersection of Calumet and Cullerton avenues is the Wheeler Mansion, another of the area's great mansions that was nearly replaced by a parking lot before it was saved and painstakingly restored in the late 1990s. Today it's a boutique hotel."
