help in memphis

by marlinkar

im visiting memphis for the first time in october this year, it will be myself and my daughter traveling to visiting graceland, im worried because we are staying at la quinta inn, im told its 10 miles from memphis and 16 miles from graceland, is this going to be very expensive for us to travel by cab or is there bus routes available?

There are 3 La Quinta's in the Memphis area. Which one will you be staying at? Graceland is not in the nicest area of town so if you don't have a car then probably a cab would be the best way to get there and back.

Take one of the bus tours that goes out to Graceland. You can get one with an option to tour Graceland. I went with Blues City Tour but didn't take the Graceland option.

http://www.bluescitytours.com/memphis-Tour3b.php

The Graceland Platinum Tour tickets bought at Graceland are $34.00
The Graceland Platinum tour includes:

* an audio-guided tour of Graceland Mansion and grounds
* a self-guided tour of Elvis' two custom airplanes
* a self-guided tour of Elvis' Automobile Museum
* a self-guided tour of Elvis in Hollywood Exhibit
* a self-guided tour of Elvis Lives: The King and Pop Culture Exhibit
* a self-guided tour of Elvis Presley: Fashion King Exhibit
* a self-guided tour of '68 Special Exhibit

Average Tour Time: 2 ½ to 3 hours

The Blues City tour that combines seeing the city of Memphis with the Graceland Platinum Tour tickets are $71.00 and includes the Platinum Graceland tour entrance and lunch. It is a 7 hour tour.

There are three trolley lines in downtown Memphis and they are all old versions of the New Orleans streetcars with quite rough rail beds and wooden seats. We got on the Riverside Loop car, and paid 50 cents each (as old people - half regular rate). We asked about a transfer and he said we couldn't get one unless we transferred to the Madison Street line. The Loop car goes up Riverside and then comes down Main (which is not open to vehicular traffic). The main feature of the Madison car was going by the Wonderbread bakery, which you can tell by smell alone. At the end of the line, we paid again (another $1.00) and got another transfer and went back to where we started.

I don't know what a cab would cost as we had a car.

I agree, the bus tour is probably the way to go. That way you will also be with other Elvis fans.

In downtown Memphis be sure to stop at the Peabody Hotel for the Duck Walk, possibly go over to Mud Island and if you want something really good to eat try the Neeley's BBQ Spaghetti.

Travel Tips for Memphis

The New Bridge

by myrtle

The technical name of this bridge is the Hernando-Desoto bridge, although it's also known as the Mississippi Bridge and the new bridge. This bridge has actually been around for about 30 years. Most people distinguish this bridge from the other bridge by calling it the new bridge. It connects Memphis, Tennessee to West Memphis, Arkansas. If you miss your downtown Memphis exit and continue on I-240 heading west you may very well end up on this bridge with no exits for about 20 minutes. Be careful. Once you pass exit 1 you have passed downtown Memphis & next stop will be West Memphis, Arkansas.

Memphis Redbirds

by myrtle

If you're interested in seeing a professional baseball game, check out Memphis' new AAA team the Memphis Redbirds. You can find them playing at Autozone Park in downtown Memphis. This picture was taken late at night from the rooftop of the Peabody Hotel. I hope to take one during the daytime that should turn out a little better.

Alcoholic Goats

by cckbp7 about Silky O'Sullivans

Silky's is always a great time. The dualing piano players sing some hilariously raunchy songs. The divers are a lot of fun and a great souvenir. A Diver is a drink that comes in a bucket with a bunch of straws. It's made with beer, wine, liquor, cool-aid, and a bunch of other stuff; amazingly they are still quite good. After enjoying your diver, buy a beer for the goats. That's right, the goats! Out back, there are two goats that love beer. Just put the neck of the bottle through the fence and a goat will grab it and gulp it down. One of the craziest things I've ever seen. The combination of pianos, divers, and drunken goats makes for a great time.

More About Memphis
1. Downtown Memphis is composed entirely of one-way streets. The only way to get out of downtown Memphis is to turn around and start over when you reach Arkansas or Mississippi.
2. All directions start with, "Go down I-240..."
3. I-240 has no beginning and no end.
4. Coca-Cola is bottled in Memphis. That's all we drink here, so don't ask for any other soft drink. And, by the way, it's pronounced "Co'Cola."
[Blogger's Note: Every soft drink is actually referred to as "Coke."]
5. Memphians only know their way home and their way to work.
6. Gate One at the Airport is 32 miles away from the Main Concourse.
7. It's impossible to go around a block and wind up on the street you started on. The Chamber of Commerce calls it a "scenic drive."
8. The 8 a.m. rush hour is from 6:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. The 5:00 p.m. rush hour is from 3:30p.m. to 6:30 p.m.; Friday's rush hour starts Thursday morning.
9. Reversible Lanes (for example, Union Avenue) are not understood by anybody.
Note: They finally got smart and made Union into a normal street.
10. "Sir" and "Ma'am" are used by the person speaking to you if there's a remote possibility that you're at least 30 minutes older than they are.
11. "Sugar" is a more common form of address than "Miss." So is "Honey," And don't be offended; it is used by both sexes.
12. "Presley" can only be properly pronounced by a native Memphian, so do not attempt the pronunciation. People will simply tilt their heads to the right and stare at you with their mouths open.
[Blogger's Note: Ironically, though, few native Memphians have ever set foot in Graceland.]
