Oakland is a neighbourhood of south-central Chicago located on the shores of Lake Michigan. The area is known throughout the city as an up and coming neighbourhood that’s gearing up for a prosperous future.
Just south of the Oakland area is The Museum of Science and Industry, one of Chicago’s most esteemed attractions. Home to a range of informative exhibits geared toward a family experience, the crown jewel of the museum is perhaps the Apollo 8 spacecraft, which attracts space enthusiasts from across the city and Illinois state.
Frederick C. Robie House is a US National Landmark close to Oakland situated on the campus of the University of Chicago. Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, the 1910 house is notable for its prairie style design and attracts architecture buffs from across the United States.
Throughout the neighbourhood, from Mandrake Park to Kennicott Park, Floom’s Oakland flower delivery covers the entire community.
