Sorry for the one pop-up ad, we got hit for another music copyright violation. lol
Our first trip to Memphis, TN! We only have one day to explore and eat our way through Memphis.
We explored Beale Street first thing in the morning to get some video content without the crowds.
Next stop… Graceland! We signed up for a tour of Elvis Presley’s home, cars, cars, and collection of gold records.
For lunch, we stopped at the highly rated bbq joint in Memphis, Central BBQ in Downtown. Pork ribs and the pulled pork nachos were on point!
Directly across the street from Central BBQ, is the Lorraine Hotel, part of the National Civil Rights Museum. Unfortunately, the museum is closed on Tuesdays.
Next stop, Sun Studios. The recording studio that launched Rock & Roll by many talented musicians, Elvis Presley included!
Did you know there’s a huge Bass Pro Shop here in Downtown with a hotel connected to it? The Big Cypress Lodge! It’s a one-stop stay, shop, and dine experience.
Dinner time! After a short drive, we arrived at Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken. It’s all about their Hot & Spicy fried chicken here!
Back on Beale Street to check out the night scene. For a late night snack, we had to try a Dyer’s burger which is deep fried in 107 year old grease!
Thank you Memphis for a great time!
