Destination Westport: In Gatsby's Shoes

Join the Museum as we recreate the summer of 1920 and the sites and characters that influenced Fitzgerald’s Great American novel. Come prepared for a gorgeous, vigorous 90-minute walk in one of the East Coast’s most beautiful settings

Imagine it’s the summer of 1920. Westport is a sleepy farm community that lures New York’s most glamorous couple-F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald—to its shores. Zelda swims daily in the peaceful waters of the Long Island Sound while Scott takes advantage of the bucolic quiet to work on what he hopes will be his next great novel—The Great Gatsby.
