The modern port city of Baltimore is a hugely popular tourist destination, with more than 11 million people enjoying the beautiful, historic and diverse neighbourhoods, world famous museums and friendly atmosphere 'Charm City' has to offer.

While no trip would be complete without a visit to Baltimore's famous Inner Harbor, tourists also stream to areas like the historic and lively Fells Point, with its cobble-stoned streets, working tugboats and bustling bars and restaurants.

When King Edward VIII of England gave up his throne to marry an American, his choice nearly brought the British Empire to its knees.

The Smithsonian Institution Resident Associates asked Zippy Larson to research the Baltimore years of Wallis Warfield Simpson and devise a tour especially for them focusing on King Edward and Mrs Simpson in Baltimore. The result was one of the RAP's most enjoyable tours: "The Woman He Loved, the Duchess, the King and the Baltimore Connection".

But Zippy didn't stop there. She continued to study Baltimore, creating dozens of eclectic tours focusing on such subjects as diverse as the city's history to the neighbours that inspired John Waters' 'Hairspray'.

Zippy's tours have many fans. The Smithsonian describes her Baltimore tours as "unequaled".
