Destination Westport: In Gatsby’s Shoes

May 25 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am


$20 – $25
Longshore Marina, Lot F Parking Area 260 Compo Rd S City Westport
Westport, CT 06880 United States


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.

Seeking respite from their whirlwind Jazz era lives, the Fitzgeralds set up in an 18th century farmhouse that has seen Revolution and the building of a nation over many decades. 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. 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. Please bring water and wear comfortable walking shoes.

PARKING INFORMATION: Guests should park at Longshore Marina, along the asphalt and dirt areas, in Lot F.
