It only takes a short stroll along this neon-lit stretch of road to understand why the national historic landmark is Tennessee's top tourism attraction. Memorabilia depicting great musicians dots the sidewalks as live music fills the air seven nights a week on this iconic city block in the heart of downtown Memphis. The shrimp gumbo at Blues City Café is as just as mouthwateringly delicious as my Louisiana-born relatives used to make; and exploring the historically nostalgic A. Schwab soda fountain established in 1876 was a blast as we tried on fedora hats, rose boutonnieres, and Elvis sunglasses complete with faux-fur pork-chop sideburns attached on either side. After winding our way up through a secret back entrance, a private dinner hosted at B.B. King's Blues Club was followed by an upbeat round of live music to cap off a simply terrific evening.
