A few years ago, during a cross country road trip, a friend and I just happened to be passing through Memphis during the annual "Memphis in May" festival. We weren't going to stay in town, but the advice of a local persuaded us to do so. We were able to get a hotel right on the Mississippi River for around $70, and I have to say, being my one and only night spent in the city of Memphis, I wasn't disappointed. Beale St, which seems to be almost like the Bourbon St. of Memphis, was quite an interesting place to check out during this festival. From an outdoor bar that has a goat that drinks beer, to the street performers, to the live blues music, it is quite a good time. I would recommend if you get a chance, it is definately worth checking out!
