My husband & I have decided to brave Bonnaroo this year. I know, but it's our 15 yr. old son's dream trip, & we're going to do it. :p From there, we plan to visit Memphis &/or Nashville. After Bonnaroo, mom & dad will be more than ready for a nice hotel & some fine dining. :-D
We'd like to visit both cities, but will be kind of limited for time. We'll probably spend a night, maybe 2, in Nashville, but think our son will enjoy Memphis more. He likes all kinds of music, but country is his least favorite. He doesn't really listen to any of the current country artists, but enjoys listening to some of the legends like Johnny Cash. Rock & Roll is his favorite, but he also enjoys Jazz, The Blues, etc. He's just really into music.
From what I've read, I think he'll definitely want to go to these:
National Civil Rights Museum
Rock & Roll Museum
I've also read about Beale Street & the nightly blues music. We would be there on week nights. Is there music then, & can our son attend? We would all really enjoy that. Any info on this would be appreciated.
Last question for now......
We travel with a mini-doberman pinscher. As far as hotels go, we're hoping the Westin will be open by then. If not, what nice, pet friendly hotel would you recommend in a good area that's convenient to the things we want to do?
I've noticed the locals are very helpful, when planning a trip to Memphis. I want to thank you in advance for your help.
