Memphis - Tennessee

While Memphis and Nashville are both known for their music, Memphis has more than just Country Music.  It's famous for the Blues.  When strolling downtown Beale Street, you can hear a wide variety of sounds.  It's a totally different feel.  We stayed at a State Park just north of Memphis.  It's located in a state forest, and was a perfect campground (except for the mosquitos). 
 
 
Main Street in Downtown Memphis




The trolley runs up and down Main Street.

 


This is where the Mississippi and Wolf River meet...Looks just like the Luxor Hotel and Casino in the background...

A local Blues Band that we enjoyed



Our campsite at Meeman-Shelby State Park




The campground has a wide variety of trees including oaks, maples, hickory and poplars.


The General Store a few miles from the campground.  They advertised live entertainment and Steak Dinner.  The Steaks were great, and the entertainment was entertaining...a group of 5 fiddle players...not bad for the middle of nowhere...
