I was expecting to have a more organized visit to the great city my sister and brother in law call home, Memphis. I wanted to see a few touristy spots I had not yet seen and just visit the city that is growing by leaps and bounds. But, on my way out of Korea’s door I got word that my grandmother was about to have open heart surgery and I needed to get to Jonesboro (Arkansas, about an hour outside of Memphis) the day after I flew in.
It was a bit of a mess but everything worked out well. Grandma had her surgery and is now comfortably resting in her home. My sister and brother in law had to work for most of my visit, it was inhumanly hot and I had deep jet lag, so being a tourist wasn’t really on the cards. But I did manage to see a few spots that I know I want to return to on my next visit.
On South Main in Memphis. They have some adorable boutiques and some thought provoking historical landmarks. This is just a sample of what’s on offer in Memphis.
The trip was short and slap shot but my sister did a great job taking me to some amazing restaurants on my visit. As we well know, the food is always my favorite part! Full reviews soon!
Memphis has a reputation for being in a lag and I can firmly say that it is just not true anymore. Memphis is rising and has so many things for tourists and residents. This is such a small portion of everything this city has to offer. (Just think, I didn’t even talk about Sun Records or Graceland!) I can’t wait to go back!
