Spent a weekend in Memphis for my birthday. Walked Beale St and had a great meal at BB King's. Lots of food options and shopping along this well-known street. Must see when you're in this friendly city!

This was the perfect place for a girls trip. Our hotel was right next to a wonderful Mexican restaurant whose food was on point. The drinks were the best. I had a HUGH Margaretia that was moderately priced and worth every penny.
