Fun tour led by students. Very impressive facilities. Waited too long to make a dinner reservation at one of their restaurants. They book well in advance.

We stopped in Hyde Park for lunch at the CIA. Their Apple Pie Bakery, which usually serves lunch, was closed, so we ate at the Post Road Brew House, which also had a lunch menu. We shared several plates and everything was VERY GOOD!

There is Anton Plaza and overflow parking available. There will be people available to assist with any questions or concerns. They have graduation basically every three weeks so it is very organized. Enjoy!
