WE’RE GOING TO GRACELAND
It’s one for the money, two for the show, and Memphis is go cat go in 2017 – the 40th anniversary year of Elvis’s death – with interest on expedia.com.au up more than 30 per cent year-on-year.
“Memphis is a must if you want to visit the birthplace of the blues, soul and rock ‘n’ roll,” says Expedia travel expert, Lisa Perkovic. “The city is having a culinary moment.
“During the weekends, restaurants are abuzz with Memphians making the most of a long, relaxing brunch spent with family and friends.”
With more than 100 barbecue restaurants alone, and more soul food than you can poke a rib at, your stomach will be kept happy while you immerse yourself in the music heartland.
“When you come to Memphis, it’s best to stay in the Downtown area, which is also close to Beale Street where the majority of the action is,” Perkovic says.
“One of the best venues is BB King’s, the original B.B. King’s Blues Club. Seven days a week, you can enjoy live entertainment, from authentic blues to classic soul and rock and roll.”
