For this three days weekend (labor day) we did a road trip in Tennessee.
Distance: 665 miles
Duration: 9h39 min
Total cost : 150$ / per pers
First day: Memphis
We made a first stop in Memphis to visit the house of Elvis Presley (Graceland). Nice visit, you have lots of souvenir store and the explication inside the house about the life of Elvis are great. The audio guide is well done and really good.
After this stop, we went in Memphis at Beale street which is the heart of Memphis music and entertainment. This street is a melting pot of delta blues, jazz, rock ‘n’ roll, R&B and gospel.
Second day: Nashville
We drove 1 hour before we stopped in an hostel on the road to Nashville. The next morning we drove 2 hours before heading up to Nashville.
First stop Green Hills, nice area, kind of hipster with shopping and fancy bar/restaurant. Nice place to stay and chill out.
Second stop ; downtown Nashville. We walk around, there is a nice street Broadway street to listen to some live music.
Third stop; Midtown Nashville. There is a reconstitution of the Parthenon. There is a nice park with a lake where you can enjoy a dinner or lunch on the grass.
Last stop; back to Broadway street to enjoy more live music and country music.

The last day of our 3 days weekend is the drive back to Dallas -> 7 hours of driving is waiting for us.
