Oh, the PLACES I’ve been! #40 - Memphis

Memphis is a great little city.

Best known for the home of BB King and…

…Elvis!

It’s an interesting city of contrasts.

The old trolleys still run…

There’s the fabled glitz and glam…

…of Beale Street.

And the glory…

…of the Mississippi.

Can’t wait to see where you’ve been!

Memphis looks like a wonderful city to explore. Who wouldn't want to spot Elvis around town? I haven't been yet but cities by the Mississippi have always fascinated me. I hear the BBQ is great too :)

I haven't been to Memphis in DECADES! Thanks for the tour. Gosh, I missed a lot back then. Thanks for hosting, too.

Memphis looks like an interesting city - I have heard of of course, but shall probably never see - so thanks for taking us there.
Thanks for hosting - Oh the Places I've Been - always fun to hook up with.
Have a great weekend.

Recently we drove through Memphis on our way from Texas visiting our children. As we approached the brigee and viewed the Skyline of the city I couldn't get my camera out and focused before I missed the shot. It was a beautiful picture but I missed it. The bridge is quite noteworthy.

Hope to really visit the city one day.

I love this party.

It's been years since I last visited Memphis. Fun to see your photos. I think Mud Island is one of my favorite sights in Memphis.

Alma, you got some great pix of the city. I've always had trouble getting a good shot of Beale Street, but you did it. Fun to see familiar places on your Places I've Been. laurie
