Memphis, TN

Our next stop on our trip was Memphis, TN.  Home of Elvis Presley and BBQ ribs.  So, that is exactly what we enjoyed.

Our first place to visit was Graceland.  In fact, our RV park is so close we could walk over.  Graceland is historic because of who lived there, not because of the house itself. It was not an architectural tour (go to the Biltmore Mansion for that) but a look into the life of a music icon. It was amazing to see the impact Elvis Presley had on the area and to music in general.  He truly was King.

Our second stop was downtown Memphis, and Beale street in particular.  This is the home of the blues and BBQ ribs.  We had a drink in a bar that had live blues music, then had a rack of ribs at the famous Rendezvous restaurant.  The dry rub ribs were tasty but we prefer the wet ribs like you get in Texas.  But it was tasty!
