Super 8 West Memphis
Travel Blogs from West Memphis
Today we awoke bright eyed and bushy tailed and excited to visit Graceland. Well, Laura was excited...if I'm honest I don't really like Elvis' music haha. We walked on down to Sun Studios to wait for the shuttle to Graceland; it's a little way out of the city and if you take the free shuttle, you get to watch Elvis videos on a loop the whole way, and sit surrounded by older American ladies dressed head to toe in glittery Elvis paraphernalia jitter with excitement. ...
... a four-lane street to Graceland. That was a loooonnggg process for a ride that I could of walked in all of 3 minutes.

Although we may have arrived during a hurricane warning the staff were friendly. They made a slight error and somehow double charged us for the room but instantly corrected the issue on our departure.
$2 mini van ride to Beale Street
Right near the Mississippi
