Memphis has definitely undergone a revival since my parents lived there as newlyweds, and on our recent family trip back to the city where my dad went to optometry school forty years ago, we ate at some old favorites and tried out some newcomers. Here’s the best of what and where we ate in Memphis!
In my humble opinion, there is one thing you must do in Memphis. It’s not Graceland, it’s not barbecue, it’s not even walking 10 feet off of Beale. It’s watching the Peabody Duck March! I remember watching them when I was maybe four or five years old, and it delighted me completely.
When I think of the Peabody Hotel, I think of ducks. And actually, when I think of ducks, I think of the Peabody! The ducks are certainly their signature, but the Peabody has even more to offer! I remember staying here with my family once when I was maybe four, so maybe that’s why the ducks made such an impression. I recently got to go back to the Peabody for a long weekend with my family, and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to tell you all about it! So here it is: The Peabody Hotel, Memphis.
