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.
At the entrance there was this beautiful interesting mural.Here are some of the few pictures that I took…
I was amazed at the fact that they were able to salvage and preserve all the furniture and the things in the hotel rooms.
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.
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.
