Skipping Graceland- A Weekend in Memphis, TN

The title says it all, I didn't go to Memphis because I'm an Elvis fan- quite the opposite. I did want a short weekend getaway within a few hours of St. Louis. Now I visit Nashville a lot but wanted to expand my love for Tennessee and find an escape my boyfriend and I could call our own. In fact, if you search Memphis on Pinterest, you'll get a mix of guides for both Memphis and Nashville. Make no mistake though, these cities are very different and provide a drastically different experience. This is particularly apparent for those who have seen Nashville's rapid growth over the past few years.
