I spent 3 weeks in the USA and consider the 4 nights in Memphis a highlight. Unfortunately we just missed the beale Street music festival but the music was great anyway! Some great music in virtually every bar we went into as well as Handy Park. For a blues fan it is a must! I can recommend the Cold beer and warm service at Rum Boogie bar where we managed to gravitate to every night at some stage. The ribs at every place we ate were great too.For any music fan the Museum of Rock and Soul, just off Beale at the FedEx forum is brilliant. It is also well worth including Graceland and SUN Studios - even if you aren't a huge fan - the history of these places is awesome.Enjoy!!!!
