Went in the summer and it was still a neat attraction! A short ways off the highway, but worth the extra minutes. There wasn't anyone there to welcome us or give us a tour. It's more of a walk up and check it out yourself type thing. All the buildings are to a different scale. If you get creative with perspective, there a loads of funny photo-ops. Go check it out!

Easy access, but know that it's a quick stop. There isn't anything else around, so go and snap a pic just to have proof that you actually did it. Cool, but don't go hours out of your way

Impressive and interesting. Tours are available, but I didn't take one. Hikes are also an option. The visitors center has a free exhibit which had a lot of information and a little gift shop. A nice pitstop to make.

This place was unbelievable! Dramatic rock cliffs drop off into a pristine, emerald lake. The water was so clear, I could see almost 30 feet down. No one was around and even though it was only about 1/2 mile off the small highway, you couldn't hear a thing. I felt like I was the last person on earth! Pretty much anywhere you pull off and hike through the woods a short way, you're guaranteed an amazing adventure!

When you drive through, don't blink! Unless you're already driving through the area, not worth a detour.

This iconic piece of architecture is beautiful inside and out. Even on a rainy day when the building's flaws - it leaked like a sieve - showed, it was an extremely worthwhile stop. Though I didn't extensively explore the gardens, they too looked lovely. Tour guides were knowledgeable and informational (but they exclusively praise Wright, who was actually dramatic and hard to work with). The cafe is nice, healthy, and well-priced for museum dining. Trash is "carry-in/carry-out" policy. You have to pay to see the house (which, again, is definitely worth it!), but I believe it's free to see the grounds.
