    1. It is definitely not as popular as Graceland! But there were so many names dropped that are still recognizable today! Hope y’all get to visit soon! xx – Anshula

  1. The Sun Studio is one of those places that has an almost legendary reputation. I can understand why you were a bit apprehensive about visiting here: I would’ve entered with high expectations too! I think what helped make it work is that it doesn’t just focus on the big names and brings the stories of others who have recorded there to light as well. Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚

    1. Oh yes! With places that draw such huge amounts of tourists, I’m always a bit apprehensive. Some places are just pretty stops for pictures, but this was definitely not one of them! You are absolutely right though…focusing on the smaller not-so-famous stories was part of the reason this tour was an enjoyable experience! xx – Anshula

    1. Oh, there is so much to see and do in Memphis, it is completely understandable. It would take more than a week to cover everything! I hope you had fun during your trip! xx – Anshula

    1. Yes! It is a fabulous place to visit! I believe I mentioned both the cost and tour time in the article πŸ˜‰ But the cost is around twelve dollars (a little more with tax) and the tour is one hour. Hope that helps! xx – Anshula

  2. This is a trip full of nostalgia of Elvis. The place seems to have captured the aura of the music legend and enshrined it for all music lovers to experience.

  3. I have never visited a music studio, just passed by the one where Beatles used to record their songs, in London. I bet it’s quite a feeling to stand in the same room as Elvis did and see the exact same objects he used. That typewriter is so vintage!

  4. I attended University of Memphis and did a lot of touring while there. I don’t recall Sun Studio. Must go on my list for a visit when we take the kids to see where we met.

  5. I would really enjoy taking a trip here and seeing this. I did not know about the history either so it was nice to read about that. The ducks are so cute.

    1. I’m sure your kids would love the duck march! In fact, young children (twelve-ish and under) can sit on the red carpet with the ducks (which is super fun)! πŸ™‚ xx – Anshula

  6. The Peabody is such a beautiful hotel. We have a Peabody here in Orlando and the duck March is absolutely the cutest!

    1. Ooohh! I never got a chance to see the one in Orlando (I thought they shut down the duck march there a few years ago) but I’m positive it was just as adorable as the one in Memphis! πŸ™‚ xx – Anshula

  7. I love this post! I’ve been to the Peabody in Memphis and I’ve seen the ducks and it was an awesome experience! Thanks so much for sharing yours!

  8. ooh! I have never been to Memphis but am so intrigued after reading about Peabody! I have written it down to look into further for when we go next year!

    1. I hope you have a great time! If you are visiting Memphis, be sure to check out Sun Studios as well. And for a small town escape Collierville is less than forty minutes away. ?
