My Memphis Must-Dos!

I'm ashamed to admit that I have not taken advantage of everything our wonderful city has to offer...and so many of them are FREE! From here on out, on weekends we don't have anything planned (which are sadly few and far between), we're going to start exploring Memphis!

This past weekend, Brent and I made our first trip to the Memphis Farmer's Market downtown. It was just as fabulous as I hoped! Locally grown fruits and veggies, beautiful fresh cut flowers, herbs, organic produce and meats. Mr. Mom was in heaven! :) Let's not forget the fun garden/yard art, pottery, and handmade soaps/body products, which I of course spent too much money on. We even ran into a few friends down there. So fun!

And any time we're out and about in Downtown Memphis, we usually make a stop at our fave restaurant Local Gastropub. As usual, it did not disappoint!

Next on the list is Elmwood Cemetery. This beautiful, historic site interests me so much, and I can't wait to visit! After that, Ghost River Brewery Tour (Brent would surely have this as #1). This is offered just about every Saturday starting at 1pm.

The South Main Art Trolley Tour and a concert at Levitt Shell is on the list as well...I could kick myself for not having done either of these yet.

What's on your Memphis (or your hometown) to-do list?


  1. Ok, I'm embarrassed to say, but I haven't been to any of these.

  2. Oh my goodness! C-line!!! Elmwood is SO beautiful. I absolutely love going there. I highly recommend going in Fall once the leaves have started to change. Words can't even begin to describe how breathtaking it is.
