Spring: Chicago Summer: Memphis


Memphis: History, Civil Rights, & Rock-n-Roll July 21-24, 2016

We invite you to travel with us to Memphis, Tennessee. We have several events planned for your enjoyment.

Our adventure begins with a stop at the St. Louis Gateway Arch including the Old Courthouse followed by a fun meal at Lamberts Café “Home of the throwed rolls” in Sikeston, MO on our way to Memphis. Rooted in Southern history, in Memphis we will learn about slavery and the cotton merchants at The Cotton Museum and in the Victorian Village, including a tour of the Woodruff-Fontaine House. A cultural hub for the civil rights movement, we will visit the National Civil Rights Museum at the Lorraine Motel where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr was shot.  We will have two special group dining experiences in Memphis, one for legendary BBQ at Charlie Vergo’s Rendezvous and one for Southern food at Uncle Lou’s Chicken, featured on the Food Channel. Memphis is known as the “home of the blues and birthplace of rock-n-roll” so we will visit the Rock N’ Soul Museum and Elvis Presley’s home, Graceland. No stop to Memphis would be complete without a stop at the Peabody Hotel to see the Peabody Ducks and a stop at the new Bass Pro Shops Memphis Pyramid. We will be staying right in the heart of the music district near the famous Beale Street so you’ll have plenty of opportunity to watch street performers, listen to live music, ride the trolley, and shop.
