Memphis, Elvis, BBQ, and the Blues

For the third day of the Country Music Vacation the group went to Memphis. Of course, we went to see the home and plane of Elvis.

Everyone was so excited to arrive.


The group toured the Lisa Marie, one of Elvis’s planes.

The first two photo’s show everyone gearing up for the tour of Elvis’s home. Sean Snaps a photo while Wayne and Eugene looks around the trophy room. Wow, there are a lot of trophies and awards. You can also see Mary  posing with one of Elvis’s guitars, and the group taking a quiet moment by the meditation fountain. The group was also able to see many of Elvis’s concert costumes while listening to the audio tour.

Lunch was at Central BBQ which was voted the best BBQ. Josh and Eugene seem to be enjoying it!

With all the activities today we needed a midday nap!


Energized from the nap we were able to enjoy the Memphis nightlife by walking around Beale Street and attending a blues club.
