    We've been before, but only with 8 kids in tow. We went solo this time around. The day was slightly cloudy & drizzly so there weren't many people there (it helped that it was Friday so most people were at work/school). The dinosaur exhibit was open & that was a nice surprise! We were able to just stroll around & take our time & be sweet. It was very relaxing, in contrast to taking the kids haha. Loved seeing all the exhibits & most of the animals were out. There was a service dog & the lionesses tried to hunt it, which was crazy to witness so close. Would 10/10 recommend.

    Taking a tour in this 55 Cadillac is a blast from the last! Our guide was very laid back and took us out of downtown Memphis. Expect tourists to take photos of you when you drive down Beale Steet

    We had a fantastic time on a pony ride celebrating our daughter’s birthday! 🎉 (We took 8 kids, ages 5-12.) Jess and the team of volunteers made it so interesting and fun! Everyone was new to riding and had a great time. We got wonderful pictures and want to go back again tomorrow! 😂

    We love this greenway. The trails are wide, well maintained, and mostly shaded. Plenty of room for walkers, runners, bicycles, dogs, strollers, etc.

    The first thing you notice about the park are the two giant mounds that served as Native American ceremonial mounds and Civil War redoubt. This is where DeSoto first saw the Mississippi River. It's a quiet place across from the Metal Museum. Unless you just want to sit and chill or give the kids time to run off excess energy, 15-30 is about all you'll need here.

    We went looking for a trail while staying the night in Memphis, boy oh boy did we find one. The trail is under construction in areas which just made it a little more challenging. The path starts in an open field and ends at a nearby sports field, it loops around and follows a river. We had to climb over trees and walk through fields. So much fun and a great workout!

    The park is inaccessible. The riverside walkway is blocked by gates. The railway is out of service. There was the international BBQ competition. Not sure this was the cause. No signs to let you know why you couldn’t walk along the river.

    While this is a public course it is very well maintained and is run more like a private course than what you typically see at public courses. Equipment is well maintained, nice rental clubs, greens well maintained and nice staff.

    This was definitely the best tour I’ve ever been on. So entertaining with the musician onboard the bus who was super knowledgeable about the history of the music he sang for us.

    We had a blast on the pedal tavern! A cooler with ice was provided - BYOB. There was also a bluetooth speaker so we could play music from one of our participant's phones. Sonya is the best tour guide!
