Fallingwater. The name sounds so poetic. It is the name of architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s truly spectacular architectural masterpiece in Pennsylvania. Any season is a good one to visit. If you’re planning a trip here’s what you need to know. Your memories will last a lifetime!
Briefly, About Fallingwater:
Why I Love It:
You can read all about Fallingwater on your own, but nothing will prepare you for how it looks and feels to be there in person. If you want to go to Fallingwater you will generally take a tour, otherwise, you’re not going to get into the house itself. You can get a pass for the grounds if you just want to be on the outside. By late Fall, it’s getting pretty chilly so wear warm clothing. To warm up, check out the visitors center where there is also a nice gift shop and cafe and where you can purchase tour tickets.
You can take photos on the tour and inside although not with flash as long as it is for personal use only. I have seen young children at Fallingwater. However, pets are not allowed at the Visitor Center or on the grounds around the house.
Plan Your Trip:
Personally, I think the most beautiful time of year to go to Fallingwater is in the Fall when the trees are a rainbow of colors. But it’s fun any time of year. This Summer 2022 there will also be some special events. If you’re seeking a romantic time in the Laurel Highlands you can read more about what’s there in this article
A good place to start planning your visit is on the Fallingwater Website: https://fallingwater.org/visit/ Here you’ll get all sorts of know-before-you-go information including where to stay and dine. You can purchase tickets. I suggest you do this well in advance. There are usually a number of different tours and time slots each day. However, people from all over the world come to Fallingwater. Tours fill up quickly and might not be available at the day and time you want to be there.
