Food scene

A classic for over 100 years, this family-owned and operatin restaurant used to be a favorite of Elvis' - so much so that there there is a booth named in his honor (where he used to sit). Be sure to check out the Food Network favorite dishes (my favorite is the Red Neck Breakfast) as well as the Elvis Sandwich. It gets busy for brunch so try to go early to miss the line! If you get caught in the wait, be sure to check out the awesome shops next door (i.e., Walking Pants, The Broom Closet, The Book Juggler, Feelin' Memphis, Prima Bakery, etc.).

This cafe is located on the first floor of the Arrive Hotel, which is one block east of our home (on the corner of Butler and Main). Along with super cute decor, you will find great coffee and yummy breakfast bites from Vice and Virtue.

Great for date night or small groups. Amazing Italian food. Although it’s a nice walk up Main Street, you could alternatively take the trolley, which pulls up right in front of the restaurant (just ask the trolley driver to stop at Beale Street).

Hands down - one of the best spots in Memphis for food, drinks, backyard-chillin, fire pits, dozens of TVs, indoor/outdoor space, great for pups, cornhole, life-sized beer pong, ring-on-a-string, etc. If you're looking for a place to spend a sunny day or a cool night, this is it! Sister restaurant to Railgarten (also a great spot!)

If history, spooky stories, billiards table, juke boxes, live bands, speakeasy-vibes, and late-night drinking are your cup of tea, this is a MUST SEE. If for nothing else, you have to stop in a grab a world famous SOUL BURGER - which comes as a single or a double. A special place with friendly folks.

Amazing park with a huge lake - great for running, biking, kayaking, etc. Check out the great restaurant on-site: Coastal. Pro tip: reserve a table at sunset on the outside deck. This place serves literally one of the *best* sunset views in Memphis.

This pedestrian bride connects Tennessee with Arkansas over the Mississippi River. It is a great three-mile loop from our home to the other side of the bride and back. You'll get amazing views of downtown Memphis, the Mississippi River, and so much more!

I know it sounds cliché, but this really is a great spot to go in Memphis, especially on a rainy day. Great views from the Observation Deck at the top. It's fun to walk around and take in all of the wildlife. Admission is free, but there is a ticket to take the elevator to the top. There is a restaurant at the top as well.
