We live in Central Mississippi, and I recently discovered that there is a settlement of Amish living in north MS. They sell rugs, baskets, etc. Next Saturday we plan to make a visit there. While we are up that way, we thought we might go on up to Memphis for a day or two. We have 3 children, but only 2 will be going with us - a boy, 13, and a girl, 9.
We are on a budget, so I am trying to find fun, interesting things to do for free or low cost. I am also unsure of the area of some of the attractions. Please give some feedback on the following:
Memphis Zoo - we are members of our zoo, so we can get in for half off.
Elmwood Cemetary - looks interesting from what I see online. Is it safe to visit? One site mentioned the neighborhood it is located in.
riding the trolley - will we be in safe neighborhoods?
visiting Beale Street
Any other ideas? Any thoughts? We may be there on Sunday. Will that make a difference?
