You might also try restaurants named "Porky's" for southern style barbecue. Tunica is only about an hour away- gambling casinos on riverboats- there might be inexpensive or free shuttle service. The concierge service at Peabody's is sure to have brochures, recommendations, good ideas, etc.

It should still be fairly warm in October, and Memphis can sometimes be very humid.

Keep in mind that the home Elvis bought for his Dad is adjacent to the back side of Graceland, and reportedly haunted. Elvis would sometimes park at his Dad's and sneak home through the bushes to avoid the press. Supposedly the house is difficult to sell, has had many owners, and others often hear footsteps opening the front door, going thru the house, and out the back door ( or so a taxi driver told me)

I had occasion to speak with the reps from the funeral home who were dispatched to pick up the body. They told me that the face was covered, and they were never allowed to see the face. The only thing they can swear to is that they picked up the body of an overweight white male.

The tour of Graceland is done at your own pace, with commentary provided by individual headphones. It makes for a much more respectful, quiet experience. I was amazed at the size of Elvis' feet- they have several pairs of his shoes on display.

Hope you enjoy the visit.

Travel Tips for Memphis

Go downtown!! This place gives...

by EliseLE

Go downtown!! This place gives me ultimate joy. We have the new Peabody Place (5 star hotel- you must stay here!), Girzzies NBA Basketball, Redbirds AAA Baseball, Jillians, Hard Rock Cafe, Beale Street, lots more. What I miss the most from Memphis, is Tops B-B-Q. Best bbq in Memphis.

Woodruff-Fontaine House and Museum

by Basheba1

If you have a chance and like history, check out the Woodruff-Fontaine House at 680 Adams Ave. They are open Wednesday thru Sunday and they have limited hours so check their website but it is worth it. The place is so beautiful and I thought I had stepped into another era. It was owned by one of Memphis' leading men back in the day and you can tell by the details put into the house. If you like walking into the past or just like beautifully, restored homes, you will love this.

A fun place to hang out

by recipe_addict about Pat O'Briens

This place was a lot of fun. They have two pianos set up in front of mirrors that are angled so you can see the keys, and they have two players up there playing song requests. The atmospher was great. They also have the famous "hurricane" drinks in souvenier glasses, which you will want to be sure to get and take home with you. (They even box the glasses up for you when you are done!) We hung out there for hours Friday night and just had a blast listening to the pianos and watching the people. Casual attire.

OTHER DRIVING IN MAMMFISS

by shekky

15. Memphis is pronounced "MEM' fus."
[Blogger's Note: Or "Memfrica."]
16. Construction on I-240 is perpetual, a way of life, and a permanent form of entertainment for the road construction companies.
17. Construction crews aren't doing their job properly unless they close down all lanes except one during rush hour.
18. Memphis' traffic is the friendliest around. The commuters spend hours mingling with each other twice a day. In fact, Memphis' traffic is rated number 1 in the country. You will often see people parked beside the road engaged in lively discussions. (See Rule #14)
19. Nonconnah Parkway (TN-385) is the southern equivalent of the Autobahn. You will rarely see a semi on Nonconnah Parkway, because the truck drivers are intimidated by the oversized SUV-wielding housewives racing home after a grueling day at the salon or the tennis match, to meet their children at the school bus.
20. The 95-pound woman driving the Ford Excursion (the largest vehicle ever produced in the world) absolutely MUST come to a complete stop, then proceed at 2.5 mph over any railroad track. Let's face it, this vehicle was built to invade small countries, and she's worried about the damn railroad tracks! Plus I think it is the Law.
21. Hard and fast rule of the road in Memphis: Never use your turn indicator when changing lanes on any freeway. Use it randomly on surface streets. (See Rule #2)
22. Pedestrians in Memphis have the right-of-way.... but it is a driver's duty to take out the pedestrian when crossing the street.
23. The parking lots at all the malls rotate once every hour, thus ensuring that visitors will be unable to find their cars.
24. Most native Memphians do not know how to get around downtown.
25. Even though I-240 is known as a "loop," you cannot drive the entire circumference of the loop without taking several exits.

Miss Polly's Soul City Cafe

by imlikeabird about Miss Polly's Soul City Cafe

Dropped by here for a late dinner after a Grizzlies/Celtics game at the FedEx Forum. Located right on Beale Street. The service was really lacking and we had to wait forever for our meal, probably close to an hour. I will give them this: it was great food when we got it. We order the Rusty Rooster, which was chicken and waffles. My husband ate most of the waffles and I ate most of the fried chicken and it was fantastic. Talk about great comfort food.
