Raise a glass to Baltimore's great thinkers on this guided walking tour in the historic Mt. Vernon neighborhood. Share a few local brews as you learn about notorious rebel rousers—including F. Scott Fitzgerald and Upton Sinclair—as well as controversial art and literature that transformed the city.

Head to the Mt. Vernon neighborhood and follow the footsteps of Baltimore's literary past while learning about famous former residents from your guide. The city has inspired many authors and artists—from muckraking journalists and revolutionary feminists to workers' rights advocates—including F. Scott Fitzgerald, Upton Sinclair, and Gertrude Stein.

As you walk through Mt. Vernon, discuss how rebel rousers challenged the status quo before stopping at a bar for your first beer and learning about Baltimore's influence on films and TV shows like The Wire and House of Cards. On the way to your next beer stop, hear about Prohibition-era speakeasies, patrons of the arts, and critics who exposed disparities between the rich and poor.
