One of my family's all-time favorite Mexican restaurants!!! The chorizo tacos and the gringa tacos are excellent. Their guac and cheese tip are also delicious! (They also deliver through Memphis' Meals in Motion service for a $4.99 fee - soooo worth it!)

I think this is my second mention of Local! It's a great restaurant anytime (try the fried Brussels!), but it's also a chill place to have a drink and hang out before/after a play at Playhouse on the Square or a movie at the Malco Studio.

Curbside is only open on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays because they're so busy preparing their ready-to-bake or serve classic southern recipes. But if you want to stay in and have a homecooked meal that you can throw in the guest house oven, this is the place to get it. They even have a drive-thru!

Overton Park is one of Memphis' biggest treasures. It's right in the middle of town, and it includes the Levitt Shell (outdoor concerts), the fantastic Memphis Zoo, The Brooks Museum of Art, and beautiful Old Forest trails. If you have kids, the Rainbow Lake playground is a popular spot to burn off some energy.

The River Walk is a cool model of the entire Mississippi River that stretches the length of the park. Kids can splash around in the water and walk all the way to the "Gulf of Mexico" at the south end of the park. Riding the monorail across the harbor to the park (or walking the pedestrian walkway) is lots of fun.

The Greenbelt park is located on Harbortown, a community of stylish homes on the Mississippi River. The park is a great place to just sit and watch Ol' Man River flow past. (And if you want a treat afterwards, Miss Cordelia's grocery store on the Island has some great local snacks.)

We love our local garden! It has some beautiful walking trails and the kid's area (My Big Backyard) is an incredible place to visit. The Botanic Garden Concert Series also host some great concerts from late Spring to early Fall. They honor reciprocal memberships, so if you belong to your local Botanic Garden, let them know.

We have a new bike/walking path that allows you to cross the Mississippi River. Highly recommended! And afterwards, stop at Loflin Yard for a unique outdoor bar/restaurant/hang out place. It's hard to describe - an urban bar with games, beer and live music on the property of an old locksmith/key factory?

IMAX theater and Planetarium - fun for adults and kids! It looks like parts of the main museum are under construction until June 2018, so please check their website for current information. But here's the description lifted from their website: The Pink Palace Museum is one of the largest facilities of its kind in the Southeast. Explore the cultural and natural history of the Mid-South through exciting exhibits, dioramas, and audio-visuals. Trace Memphis' development from the time of Spanish explorers through the Civil War and the yellow fever epidemics. Learn from the award-winning medical exhibit how health care grew to be Memphis' largest industry.
