“A must see attraction in downtown Memphis that tells the history of the civil rights movement in the US.”

Zoo
“The Memphis Zoo packs in a ton of exhibits in a small walkable area. In the summer this place is packed, but if you can brave the cool air, the winter still has plenty of things to see. For young children, bring a swimsuit in the summer to splash in the small river and 18 inch pool. You can usually watch the Pokemon Go players buy a tram pass and ride the loop to hit all the stops. They also have a couple of pandas, if you feel like watching them sit there.”

“If Shelby Farms seems too big, Overton is Memphis’ central park. It houses the zoo, the Brooks Museum of Art, a golf course, multiple playgrounds, and walking trails.”

Record Shop
“I can't make a list and not include Beale. The history is incredible. Now it's mostly neon and bars. Lots of bars, restaurants, and live music that they think tourists would like. I go maybe once or twice a year. You can have an open container on the street and I think they serve til 5 or 6 AM. It's fun to walk with a drink in your hand. LOTS of great souvenir shops.”

Restaurant

“Over 60 years ago in the small community of Mason, Tennessee, Napoleon “Na” Vanderbilt created something amazing – fried chicken that could unite a community. In an era of divisive racial attitudes the residents of Mason found that they could all – black and white – agree on how much they loved Na’s fried chicken. Such an amazing feat did not occur overnight. After experimenting for several years in a local tavern, Na and his wife, Ms. Maggie, began selling their chicken, sandwiched between two slices of white bread, out of the back door of the tavern. As demand grew, Na and Maggie were encouraged by local residents to build a freestanding restaurant. Unfortunately, the Vanderbilt’s were of modest means and could not afford such an expansion; however, generous, chicken loving locals offered to supply them with the materials necessary to build their own restaurant. Na, a skilled carpenter, built the restaurant on a piece of land he and Ms. Maggie owned on Highway 70 in Mason. Maggie’s Short Orders opened its doors in 1973. The building still stands today and still serves Na and Maggie’s amazing fried chicken.”

Park
“If you’re looking to get out and enjoy some outdoors without traveling too far, this is the place. The playground alone will keep children occupied for hours, but there is also kayaking/SUP on the lake, paddle boats on a pond, trail running, fishing, disc golf, other things I can’t even remember.”
