Did you know that Southwest Airlines’ LUV jets can now be spotted at Memphis International Airport? That’s one more reason to visit this vibrant city!
With its rich musical heritage, world-renowned barbecue, and one of the most sacred landmarks in the country, Memphis is a city that should top your bucket list, as it has a way of seeping into your soul. And that is why as Spirit magazine’s Travel Editor, I couldn’t wait to experience Memphis first hand.
I couldn’t help but feel awestruck when I stood in Sun Studio, where Elvis recorded his first song, and I felt transformed after leaving the National Civil Rights Museum, located at the Lorraine Motel where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in April 1968. When you add to the mix some of the friendliest residents I’ve ever met, you’ll see why Memphis leaves so many visitors singing its praises.
