Lindsey said: “The Lisa Marie, Graceland, and the Peabody Hotel with the ducks.”

Diane said: “As a Memphis native, must see the ducks at the Peabody – coming down is the best… get there early. Jerry’s Snow-Cones is the bomb! Huey’s has an awesome burger, multiple options for awesome BBQ.”
Christine said: “One of my favorite things to do is get a burger at Huey’s.”

Katie said: “Zoo for sure! Also Memphis Redbirds AAA baseball game.”
Dana said: “The zoo has pandas and polar bears. Pink palace. Children’s Museum. Botanical Gardens. BBQ. Shelby Farms if you are taking kids, it has a really great play area. Oh and I do have to second Three Little Pugs BBQ. It is awesome!!! Now the restaurant is not fancy – it is as simple as can be. But it is yum!”

Elizabeth said: “Sun Studio – lots of history. :)”
Ashley said: “Sun Studio for sure! It was so amazing to see all of the history of where Rock ‘n Roll really took off. BB Kings on Beale was really fun.”

Allison said: “Rendevouz for BBQ. Felicia Suzanne’s for a fancy night out, delicious!”
Karen said: “Stax Museum, Sun Studio, National Civil Right Museum, the Peabody ducks, Graceland, Beale Street, Central BBQ… I could go on and on. We also have tons of fabulous local restaurants with locally sourced food all over the city.”
Stacey said: “The zoo is a must (used to work there), definitely go to Redbirds game (best BBQ nachos ever), Mud Island for some fun history, Huey’s for burgers, any deli for sweet tea, and Beale Street for great music. Just beware that downtown Memphis is not the safest city, especially at night and by Graceland.”

Julie said: “Memphis girl here… Sun Studio, Stax Museum, The Smithsonian’s Rock & Soul Museum, Restaurant Iris for a fabulous date night, Memphis Zoo with the kids, the Civil Rights Museum at the Lorraine Motel, Gibson’s Donuts. Gus’s Fried Chicken, Central BBQ, Children’s Museum at Central & Hollywood, and that doesn’t even include the touristy areas, which are Graceland, Beale Street, the Rendezvous & The Peabody. Plenty of fun restaurants in the Cooper-Young and Overton Square neighborhoods, both are in midtown a couple of blocks from each other. Oh, and catch a Memphis Grizzlies game at FedEx Forum! Enjoy!!!”
