Black History Month – Trip to Memphis Tennessee

Hello Everyone!!

I’m back! It’s been 2 weeks since I posted anything on here, but hubbby and I had the chance to visit Memphis last weekend.

First, I must say that Memphis, the city of soul music as many call it, is a beautiful city with sooo much history and so many places to visit and things to do.

Unfortunately, we were only able to visit two of the museums there. We went to the National Civil Rights Museum At The Lorraine Hotel which is the hotel where Dr. Martin Luther King was shot and killed. The tickets were not too pricey, $15 per person.DSC_0527

At the entrance there was this beautiful interesting mural.collage 3Here are some of the few pictures that I took…

After visiting the museum, we stumbled upon this soul food restaurant where the food is on point and delicious!

We also had the chance to visit Beale Street on at night. We had the chance to listen to some live music and visit a few stores on the strip. This is Beale Street during the day. DSC_0720

The next day we were able to visit the Slave Haven. Unfortunately, I was only able to take pictures of the outside. The best part of visiting the Slave Haven is the historic tour.

Overall, my trip to Memphis was awesome! Although it was a short one, I’m glad that we were able to visit. We are planning on going back for sure because we want to visit the STAX Museum, the Elvis Presley Graceland and so many other places that we were not able to go to.

  1. I am from Memphis and I so happy to see you went to Slave Haven. It doesnt have all of the bells and whistles that the civil rights museum has but still a wealth of information. glad you enjoyed my city!!
