Erin’s Memphis Fun

My trips to St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital have allowed me time to explore the wonderful city of Memphis, TN.  If you haven't ever been - let me fill you in on some of my favorites!

The Peabody Hotel - This is THE historic hotel directly off of Bealle Street.  The Hotel has been there since 1869, and is where the rich and famous stay when they visit Memphis.  The Peabody is famous for their Peabody Ducks, which come down from their "duck house" ever morning via elevator, walk the red carpet to their fountain, where they stay most of the day.  Then there's a big ceremony (every day) where they walk back down the red carpet, into the elevator, and back up to their duck house.  The Peabody is amazing in every way, from their food, to the spa, service and more - its a must see (even if you can't afford to stay) on your Memphis tour.
