... in Memphis was, but it was dead.
We headed off to the Fed Ex Forum after dinner, as we had pre-booked NBA tickets to watch the Memphis Grizzlies play the New Orleans Pelicans. Memphis is suppose to be the best crowd in the league, however the place was mainly empty. After a long couple of hours, we wandered home alone Beale Street (which was also dead) and back to the hotel.
... We checked in, everybody was given an iPad with a audio tour on it for each room and options to view virtual tours and extra photos and videos available; we had to get a shuttle bus after another cheesy souvenir photo, I was confused where Graceland was! ...it was opposite, the shuttle took us across the road and up the driveway. It was huge and beautiful! He bought the property in 1956 when he was 21 years old, it's 13acres (I think that's right?) huge anyways. ...

Before we came back to the cabin, we drove by Graceland and saw it all lit up at night.

We put on some extra clothes as it was a bit chillier than Waxhaw and went for a walk in search of food before the concert at the Ryman Auditorium. We found a little arcade with a bunch of food stalls but is really only set up for the lunch crowd. But we managed to find ...
... Then we'll be moving onwards to our next 'home base' in Clarksdale with day excursions to other nearby Mississippi locales (nothing is more than a couple of hours around here!)
The group has enjoyed the vibe of Memphis. It's easy going and a bit cozy, the kind of town where you know it and it knows you. It's not too flashy (exception to Beale) yet there is so much you can see and do easily here, it's quite nice indeed.
