Mama to Memphis

Jump to last reply

We are four ladies: Mama and her best friend, Gladys (in their 70s), my bff and me (in our 50s). Last year, with much help from kind Fodorites, we planned an amazing trip to New York. we had so much fun that we'd like to try traveling together again. This time to Memphis.

We're planning a long weekend in early September. Mom and Gladys have health concerns (heart, lung) so we need to minimize walking, especially in the heat. Tips on bathrooms along the way are also appreciated as Gladys takes water pills that seem to go off like time bombs.

Graceland, Sun Studio, the Peabody Ducks, barbeque and Beale Street are all on our wishlist. Mama and Gladys aren't much for museums but they love a good bus tour, seeing a real slice of the city, souvenirs, and a great bargain.

Can you help?
