Walking On Beale Street

It goes without saying that a visit to Memphis has to include some time walking on Beale Street. Starting at the Mississippi River, the route travels almost 2 miles into the city. The iconic portion that many people picture is actually only about 5 blocks long. Packed with entertainment, shopping, and dining establishments, Beale Street is the place to find legendary music. Of course, it is so much more than that and this historic district has a past that is as colorful as the neon signs that illuminate the night. Schwab's Iconic Museum Beale Avenue traces its origin back to 1841 when it [...]

Embracing Nature – Crystal Bridges Museum Of American Art

When you travel to the home base of Walmart, you can expect big things. The Walton family has been diligent in giving back to the community and Bentonville has certainly prospered from this relationship. A prime example of this is the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. Creating a world-class art museum is an expensive endeavor. Making it free to the public moves it to an epic level. Looking out at the campus, it's obvious the architect was embracing nature with their design. We placed a visit high on our priority list during our planning stage. We want to thank Visit Bentonville and [...]

Sunrise Memphis – Embracing Memphis Deliciously

Breakfast meals are some of the hardest to blog about on a consistent pace. While we all love a delectable start to our day, quite often the meals are cookie-cutter style and resemble many others we have enjoyed. It takes something out of the ordinary to help get the creative juices flowing for an article. During our 24 hours in Memphis, we needed to identify a good spot for breakfast. Sunrise Memphis fit the bill perfectly, as they are well-known for being a local favorite. It didn't take us long to realize that they are embracing Memphis deliciously by serving up some southern [...]

Louisiana River Parishes – Exploring The River Road

Summer brings a combination of heat and humidity to the lands along the Gulf Coast. For some, this signals a move indoors or excursions to cooler climates.

Gaining Perspective – National Civil Rights Museum

There are moments in history that stand out on the timeline of world events. On April 4, 1968, the world would be forever changed by the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. Our short time in Memphis limited our ability to tour the National Civil Rights Museum, but we still carved out time for a visit to the site of this heinous act against humanity. On a Sunday morning, we found the museum closed, but there are still plenty of outdoor exhibits to make a visit educational and worthwhile. For us, it was gaining perspective about the life of a man who helped [...]

Natchez Visitors Center – Breaking New Ground

One of our favorite things about travel blogging is learning about new destinations. Our first visit to the state of Mississippi landed us in the oldest city.

The mild climate and rich soil beckoned new arrivals from immigrants all over the globe. The mix of cultures is apparent in the architecture of the homes and buildings that make up Natchez. Our first stop would be the Natchez Visitors Center, to gain a better understanding of this [...]
