Memphis, Tennessee

I can't count the number of times I've been to Memphis, but on this trip, we steered clear of all our usual haunts and checked a bunch of boxes off of our Memphis Bucket List — a Grizzlies game, ribs at Rendezvous, a walk in the the South Main Arts District, a visit to Graceland, and meals, drinks, and shopping in the Cooper Young and Midtown neighborhoods all made the list.
