AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Don't let the term “prairie house” fool you—this is one elegant, magical structure. Frank Lloyd Wright's most famous piece of Buffalo architecture is actually several buildings strung out like a necklace along a landscaped backdrop. The architect was 36 when he got the once-in-a-lifetime chance to build not just one home, but a whole complex, and integrate it as he wished into the surrounding nature. The various low-level, one-story structures are connected by a long, gleaming conservatory filled with shrubs and flowers. Tours start at the Eleanor and Wilson Greatbatch Pavilion (where there’s also summer jazz).
