Hi Kara,

The question asks:

"Add a wrapper <div> around the content inside <body>. Give it the class 'container'."

So you want to make sure you're wrapping the entire content, and currently it looks like you're closing the div after the header. Try something like this instead:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>Getting Started with CSS Layout</title>
    <link href='https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Varela+Round' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
  </head>
  <body>
    <div class="container">
      <header>
        <h1>Best City Guide</h1>
      </header>

      <div class="main">
        <h2>Welcome!</h2>
        <p>Dessert toffee chocolate lollipop fruitcake cake sweet. Pudding cotton candy chocolate pudding liquorice jelly marzipan. Muffin gummies topping lollipop. Caramels chocolate cake donut liquorice.</p>
        <p>Cake sesame snaps sweet tart candy canes tiramisu I love oat cake chocolate bar. Jelly beans pastry brownie sugar plum pastry bear claw tiramisu tootsie roll.</p>
      </div>

      <footer>

      </footer>
    </div>
  </body>
</html>
