Memphis holidays are home to The Peabody Hotel and their famous ducks. It’s also where Elvis Presley’s mansion, Graceland, still welcomes visitors. Music beats in the heart of this city where rock ‘n roll was made famous by ‘The King’ and his blue suede shoes. Huge names like Johnny Cash, B.B. King and others also recorded here. Today, Stax Museum of American Soul Music stands as a testament to those roots. Here, Isaac Haye’s Eldorado Cadillac and Ike and Tina Turner memorabilia are on display for soul-lovers everywhere. Little Milton’s guitar, glittering swanky dresses and album covers make this an interesting place to spend the day.
The Slave Haven/Burke Estate Museum brings a dark part of southern history to life. Part of the Underground Railroad, this estate was known as the Memphis Stockyards where travelers could give their herds rest. It was also where slaves seeking freedom found refuge on their treacherous journey to the North.
Looking for some excitement and nightlife while you visit Memphis? Beale Street, with its neon signs and outdoor seating is where you are heading. Blues music pumps out from bars like The Rum Boogie Café. Funky shops, great restaurants serving up fantastic barbeque and loads of people-watching opportunities- this place is loud, crowded and perfect for partying.
Kids will love the Children’s Museum of Memphis. Interactive displays allow the little ones to become doctors, dentists and firemen. Play on the FedEx plane or try some ‘fishing’ with a net and a flowing stream. Children will run off some energy and parents will love the exhibits (and the air-conditioning).
New York holidays is the second part of your vacation. This city never sleeps. No matter what time you arrive, people will be on the sidewalks and billboards will be flashing. Check into a luxury resort or a cozy condo. Casablanca Hotel Times Square will put you in the heart of the action. Here, free breakfast, a wine and cheese happy hour and beautifully appointed rooms will welcome you to New York. A doorman will hold the door to 7th street where the famous Times Square breathes energy into New York. Come during New Year’s Eve to watch the ball drop. Times Square will be packed with thousands of revelers, hats, horns and anticipation. This is true New York.
Central Park is an icon of New York City. Here, New Yorkers and visitors can play soccer in the open fields. For a romantic evening, sit in the park with your sweetheart and watch at dusk as the lights all around come on. Buildings all around come alive and the skyline around the park is glowing against the black of night.
Visitors to Central Park cannot miss the skating rink. At Christmas you can skate with the huge Christmas tree lit up behind you. Snowflakes make this a magical place. Live carolers and entertainers add to the ambiance. You have not really experienced New York until you’ve seen the Manhattan Skyline. A walk across the Brooklyn Bridge will give you free opportunities to snap pictures of this skyline. At night, the view is stunning. Or, take a cruise along the Hudson and East rivers to view the skyline from the water. Magnificent!
Do you need a little caffeine and sugar to keep you going while you see the nightlife? Then stop at Veniero’s Pasticceria and Caffe. A storefront window tempts tourists with delights like Sicillian cheesecake and cannoli’s. Top it off with a creamy cappuccino and you are in dessert heaven. True Italian-style desserts served here.
Memphis and New York- two fantastic cities waiting to awe visitors. Come and experience these cities soon.
