Tennesee Bucket List-West Region

This is the shortest of the three regional Tennessee Bucket Lists. The key city in this area is Memphis, which Andrew and I visited around this time two years ago. It was just for the day as we passed through on our way to Jackson, MS, so we saw some things on the list and others we did not.

Humbolt

  • Crown Winery: It’s a fruit winery that uses local fruits!

Jackson

  • Century Farm Winery: Another fruit winery that uses local fruits!

Memphis

  • Beale Street Historic District: This is where you can find Memphis’ music scene.
  • Bass Pro Shops at the Pyramid: This was one stop we made in Memphis and was probably the highlight for me as you got some great views of the city by riding the elevator to the top.
  • Elvis Presley’s Graceland: We didn’t stop by during our visit due to budget limits, but someday I’d like to check this out.
  • Elvis Presley’s Memphis: This is a new museum section that just opened by Graceland.
  • Mud Island: Cross over by footbridge to check out this amazing park that we visited while on our trip to Memphis. It allows you to “walk” the length of their scaled down map of the Mississippi River. It was so cool to do before we made our way down to New Orleans on our trip! (not mentioned in the travel guide)
  • National Civil Rights Museum: This is a must-stop and visit! We spent a few hours here, but there’s enough there to see and read to spend a whole day in the museum. So well done!
  • The Peabody: This hotel has a daily duck parade.

Paris

  • Eiffel Tower Replica: Because who wouldn’t want to see this roadside attraction? It’s a lot closer than the real Paris!

Shiloh

  • Shiloh National Military Park: Another Civil War battlefield maintained by the National Park Service.

All attractions found in the 2018 Tennessee Tourism Guide unless noted.
