Memphis..the city with soul music


Yes..walking the streets of Beale all we saw are people performing and singing soul music. It was so good it got us moving while rolling down the streets.

We arrived and drove to the famous street called Beale street. It was packed with people. And lines and security to get on the street. And they don’t allow kids under 21yrs on that street after 10pm. That whole street is designated for music and drinking folks…as well as folks like me who does not really drink.

We did not visit the elvis Presley home as a tour. And the reason being we had not two people whom are both elvis Presley fans and they said the tour was not worth the $60 per person they charging. Also they said the tour was better 10yrs ago as this time they have packed up a lot of elvis items so not an interesting tour for the price they charging. So we did not take that tour. But our RV campground was right across the street from graceland so we did get to see elvis Presley house from afar.

Now we did visit the stax mesuem and that made us all fall in love with old soul music. It was definitely a tour worth taking and the price is right. It cost us $58 for all 6 of us to take that tour. Rich old soul music. Loved it.

After we visited the hotel where Dr. MARTIN LUTHER KING was shot. The Loraine hotel in Room 306. That was nice to see that mesuem.

And right across the street of the hotel was central BBQ…finger licking bbq ribs and wings…with tasty mac and cheese and beans that will knock you out. It was so tasty and priced right. Memphis food was the one for me and my crew. Marcus loved it so much he called it the food experience.

Memphis is awesome and really loved it.

Tomorrow we leave for Nashville..

Goodbye are an amazing city filled with music and good food.

RV exploration Continues..

    • Super glad we miss the heavy rain storm we actually drove right pass a tornado. It was cool for us to see but not so cool for people who are getting that hit. But we are truly enjoying the south to the max… Memphis had super amazing food. Thank you
