Memphis Tennessee, what a cool place, you don’t even realize how jam-packed everything is until you are there. Everything you want to do is so close, leaving you with time to explore. Upon arriving we had nothing planned for Tuesday so we just chilled, having fun, playing games, and cooking. It was great, we all were able to laugh and have a delicious meal. The cabins were quaint, definitely a place we could call home for the next few days, and the cabins were always a place of fun and laughter.
Waking up the next morning we immediately got to cooking, making eggs, toast and a rack of very burnt bacon (Not on purpose). The drive was short to our next destination, but we were met with some beautiful scenery in Shelby National Park while driving. After we parked the vans we realized that the museum we where visiting had not opened yet, thus giving us our first exploring opportunity. After a little walk we came across the Peabody Hotel, a place famous for (and obsessed with) their ducks. The hotel was beautiful but sadly we there too early to see the ducks waddle into the lobby, which was sad. But we did get to explore the rooftop where the duck’s cage was as well as the awe-inspiring gift shop. There was duck swag everywhere, rows upon rows of duck stuffed animals, duck toys, key chains, and even soaps, the list goes on, this kept us occupied until it was time to go.
Every museum we went to was amazing. Each one was different and unique. We were always intrigued everywhere we went. We went to the Civil Rights Museum, Sun Records, and The Mississippi River Museum on Mud Island. We also went to the Gibson Guitar Factory, and to Beale Street, we had a blast seeing all of the shops and people. On Thursday we went to a place called Central BBQ where we had the most amazing and delicious Memphis BBQ. After we left we drove to sun records to get milkshakes and take a tour of the museum they had there.
All of us had fun in Memphis we took some tours, went to some cool places, cooked, ate some good food, and made a lot of memories. Until next time Soulsville!
