This past Friday, my boyfriend and I both had the day off, so we decided to take a day trip somewhere. We landed on Memphis, which was about a five hour drive from us. Neither of us had ever been to Memphis in a way we could actually explore.
We ate lunch at King Jerry Lawler’s Memphis BBQ (my boyfriend is a wrestling fan and coach). If you are ever in the Memphis area, go here and get these nachos. AMAZING.
We also visited Dixon Gallery & Gardens. I think this was mostly for me, because my boyfriend knows I love taking photos. The inside was closed, but their outdoor gardens were still open and beautiful. They had all these trails you could walk on.
Next, we went to Beale street and visited a couple of shops. It was starting to rain a little, so we didn’t stay very long.
Finally, we visited the National Civil Rights Museum, which I thought was amazing. If you go to Memphis, definitely stop here.
After that, we headed back home. My boyfriend planned the entire day and all of our stops. I think he did an amazing job and I had such a good time. We got the dogs and got back home around 8pm. A long day for sure, but so much fun!
