F. Scott Fitzgerald Walking Tours

Celebrate F. Scott Fitzgerald with a 75-minute guided walking tour of the St. Paul neighborhood where he spent much of his youth. Tours begin in front of the Commodore Hotel at 79 Western Ave., and include stops at 599 Summit Ave., where Fitzgerald wrote his first novel “This Side of Paradise,” and his birthplace at 481 Laurel Ave. Participants will hear about Fitzgerald’s early years, his relationship with his wife, Zelda, the impact of St. Paul on his stories and novels, and connections to the Hill family and other prominent neighbors. Guides will also discuss the importance of the neighborhood to other writers — from Sinclair Lewis to Garrison Keillor, Patricia Hampl and August Wilson. Tour stops do not include interiors.
