The Countdown Has Started!

It's official folks! My next trip is booked! In a little under a month I will be here...
Anyone care to take a guess? If you guessed...
then you would be correct! I'm so excited to finally be going there! I use to only live a few hours away when I lived in Alabama but never made the trip up and seeing as how I go to Nashville and Pigeon Forge a lot, it's shocking that I've never stepped foot in Memphis. I figure it's about time I made my pilgrimage to the home of the blues and the birthplace of rock n' roll! 

Plus, I'm a huge fan of Elvis (take off the judging hats everyone). He rocked, his music rocked and his jumpsuits rocked even harder! Here's a few of my favorite ones... Needless to say, I'm really excited to see all of it in person! I have a whole dedicated to touring Graceland.
 

Yep, that's right...I just posted about Elvis and my love of the jumpsuit AND I am excited!

Hope you have fun in Memphis, a few years ago my mom and I went to TN and she loves Elvis too, but we were headed to Nashville and she was so upset she mixed up the 2 cities! I really liked Nashville though and hopefully make it to Memphis one day

Woot woot! I have been there. Loved it.

Going on the tour of Graceland is a must. I also enjoyed the BBQ and the downtown music scene.

Jennifer!!!! When will you be here?! I live in Memphis and would love to tell you some great food places and fun things to do! It's always good to get ideas from locals, so you're not stuck in too much of a tourist rut. Although, being a tourist in Memphis looks like a lot of fun... there's so much to see and do!!! Anyway, if you want any advice, let me know, and I will shoot you my email address! You are going to LOVE Memphis!

Hueys is a great place for burgers and homemade rings....and Blues City Cafe makes THE most incredible Catfish. BB Kings has a great atmosphere and the food isn't bad either. We've been to Memphis a bunch and still haven't hit the Rendezvous. I've heard that they have make awesome ribs. Makes me wish I was going too!! I will look forward to hearing all about it!
