How did the tradition of the ducks in The Peabody fountain begin? Back in the 1930s Frank Schutt, General Manager of The Peabody, and a friend, Chip Barwick, returned from a weekend hunting trip to Arkansas. The men had a little too much Tennessee...more
The ducks sit in the lobby fountain from 11am to 5pm.
It’s great for adults and children alike to be there to watch them waddle the red carpet to and from the lift to the fountain and back again.
There is a great story as...More
We had the opportunity to see “The Peabody Ducks” twice on our visit to Memphis. This is especially something to do if you have little children. They line the red carpet with the kids for two reasons - one, the kids just loved it, and...More
Went to see the Ducks at 11:00 am and 500 pm . They walk through the lobby to the fountain spend the day in the fountain them at 5:00 the walk through the lobby to the elevator to go home. Great item to see
This is a must wherever you are staying. I went shortly after checking into the Peabody early and sat with my coffee with a great view. By the time my husband arrived on the weekend it was crazy busy even on a freezing February weekend....More
If you are looking for something that is free to do this is it. Plan to arrive at least a half hour early to have a good viewing spot. The duckmaster provides the history of the hotel and the ducks before marching them in.
It is highly recommended to get there at least a half hour before ducks arrival time. As others have stated, it can be very crowded. You will also find that some people free "more entitled" than others. It is a silly event... More

3 couples arriving afternoon (after 3 nites in Nashville) on Monday May 22nd staying in a condo near Bealle St. We are staying 3 nites so we will have all day Tuesday and Wednesday and part of Monday (arrival day) to see the town before heading back to NC. We want to do as much as the obvious touristy things as possible without backtracking too much. So, can you tell me how we should plan our days if we want to see National Civil Rights Museum, Sun Studio, Graceland (free shuttle with Sun...More

Graceland and Sun will pretty much take up a day. Graceland takes about two hours to tour the mansion or four hours to see all of the exhibits and Sun takes about ninety minutes. So, plan on that Tuesday or Wednesday. Stax is a bit away from the main downtown area and you'll want to drive there. Everything else you've mentioned is downtown. I would say to allow a couple of hours each for Stax and Rock and Soul and maybe an hour each for the Blues Hall of Fame and Mud Island (the park part of...More
