Need an interesting place for one night near Memphis

Jump to last reply

My husband and I have planned a trip to Clarksdale for a music festival from April 10-14. At the end of the trip we'll be staying in Memphis from April 14-16 and then fly home. This is our first visit to the South. Our original plan was to fly into Memphis on the 9th, hang out there a bit the next day and then drive to Clarksdale. My husband's conference ends a day earlier than we thought so we're now arriving on the 8th. It turns out that our B&B in Memphis doesn't have a room for the extra night at the beginning. It seems kind of silly to stay in one place on our arrival, move to another for the next night in the same town and then move again to Clarksdale. One possibility is to find another place to stay in Memphis for the first two nights, but I'm just not sure that there is enough to do there for almost 5 days. We absolutely want to go to Graceland, Sun Records and Stax. Otherwise, we're not sure.

One other thought is to stay in Memphis one night and then drive somewhere else for the second evening. The only criteria is that wherever we stay is around a 2 hour drive from Clarksdale. That opens up a whole lot of places though and I have no idea where to even begin. Our interests include the Civil War, or someplace with great local color and oh, we love to eat good local foods. We are planning on taking some day-trips while we're in Clarksdale since most of the music events are in the evening.

I know that this is a really broad request as far as places to stay but I'd love suggestions, someplace else in Tennessee or in Mississippi. Or let me know if I'm wrong about staying longer in Memphis.
