This weekend we decided to take hubbies mom/dad to Memphis, TN for a little visit. Luckily we live only about 3 - 4 hours away so its a nice drive.It seems the more we visit this place the more I like it. In this pic is the Pyramid where they use to have big concerts and show. I don't know what takes place in it now.This is the bridge that crosses the MS river from TN into AR. There is always lots of traffic on this bridge.They have these cute little streetcars that they use. Looks like fun to me!Memphis has so much history. I guess that's one reason it's fun to explore. Here's Sun Records studio. This is where Elvis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis got their start.This is the main reason we went to Memphis. Welcome to barbecue heaven. The Rendezvous has the best ribs you can ever put in your mouth. It's a really neat old place that has been around since 1948. We asked someone snap a pic while waiting on our food. Our mouths were pretty much watering at this point!After we ate we drove around to see some of the sights. This is Beale street. Many moons ago this would not have been a safe place to walk around but Memphis is doing a great job revitalizing their downtown. I don't know if anyone has been watching the show "America's Got Talent" but recently they had a group called The Beale Street Flippers. In the middle of this pic(white shorts) you can see two of them here. They had been doing their routine but we missed most of it.The Federal Express Forum is where they host all the big shows and concerts now. Did you know Fed Express is headquartered in Memphis?On the way out of town today I tried capturing a pic of this Fed Express plane. These planes are so large that I love watching them.
We really enjoyed our weekend. The weather was picture perfect. No humidity and very low 80's. If you ever have a chance to go to Memphis, check it out.
Hope everyone else had a good weekend!
