From my limited knowledge Beale St. is similar to Bourbon St. In New Orleans...which of course means I'm very intrigued. ;)
I want to soak up the atmosphere of BB King's Blues club.
OH, I read every year in May, Memphis puts on the Beale Street Music Festival. A three day music concert event right next to Beale Street, to celebrate this historical city's incredible music.
I've been told by someone "in the know" that The Peabody http://www.peabodymemphis.com/ has ducks! What do you think of that Ducky...err Mechele? :)
And lastly, have I mentioned I love BBQ?
Hey, if you've got a minute, I'd be interested in hearing what new-to-you-US-city you want to explore and why? And for those shy visitors feel free to e-mail me at mel @ melissa-lopez .com (no spaces)
