15 Elvis Presley's Graceland Visitor's Guide07/05/2018 Duração: 13min
Welcome to our Memphis Travel Guide, this is part 5 of this series. On this episode we will provide you with information about visiting Memphis' top attraction - Graceland.Graceland Farms was originally owned by Stephen C. Toof, founder of S.C. Toof & Co., the oldest commercial printing firm in Memphis, who was previously the pressroom foreman of the Memphis newspaper, the Memphis Daily Appeal. The "grounds" (before the mansion home was built in 1939) was named after Toof's daughter, Grace. She inherited the farm/grounds from her father in 1894. After her death, the property was passed down to her niece Ruth Moore, a Memphis socialite, who together with her husband, Thomas Moore, built a 10,266 square foot Colonial Revival style mansion in 1939.After Elvis Presley began his musical career, he purchased a $40,000 home for himself and his family at 1034 Audubon Drive in Memphis.

Thanks for joining us on the Memphis Destination Guide Part 4 – Memphis Good Eats and Good Sleeps.Memphis is not surprisingly a very active, entertaining city, and with that comes a very unique culinary experience – from Memphis BBQ to Creole to Elvis inspired delights – Memphis has an enormous amount of variety and spice.And since we are in Memphis and you are probably here because of the King, let's get two places that are must visit out of the way first.The oldest cafe still in operation in Memphis is the legendary Arcade Cafe. Located at 540 South Main St. You can't miss the neon signs inviting you into the comfy cafe and the plush booths. It is reported that Elvis visited this restaurant frequently and enjoyed their breakfasts and burger options. Today, you can sit in the same booth that Elvis sat in and order Elvis inspired treats. The restaurant's seating is limited and it can get very, very, busy, so plan on waiting for some time if there are events going on in town related to Elvis. An interesting fa

By now you have probably figured out that there are a lot of exciting activities and great museums in Memphis, so lets slow things down a bit and talk about some easy going, relaxing travel activities that are also great with families with young children.If you have young children and are particularly fond of water fowl, head over to the Peabody Hotel to watch the famous duck march. The Legend of the Peabody Memphis Ducks started back in the 1930s, and they still visit the lobby fountain at 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. each day.They hop out of the fountain, walk the red carpet, step into the elevator and ride to the rooftop. The whole procession only takes 20 seconds, but the “duck master” talks for about 20 minutes about the history of the hotel and the ducks. Now you might think this is an odd tourist attraction, and you are right and that is probably why it is so popular.If you have little ones and you need to wear them out for the day, head over to the Memphis Children's Museum. Children will have the opportunity t

6 San Diego Travel Guide San Diego in One Day18/03/2018 Duração: 03min
Welcome to Experience This 360 Episode San Diego in One DayOn this episode we will go over a recommended itinerary for visiting San Diego for only one day. If you find yourself in San Diego for just one day, you'll need to make the most out of your time, because there is a lot to see and do as we have covered in previous episodes on San Diego.First of all, it really does not matter where you are staying as a lot of the top attractions are minutes apart. San Diego traffic can get congested during rush hours or during special events but you should not have too much time stuck in traffic. That being said, driver's here seem to pretty aggressive so take care and be on the defensive. If you have arrived in the morning, I would suggest heading to the world famous San Diego zoo. The zoos early mornings are less crowded allowing you to park with ease, enter without lineups and enjoy the zoo without bumping shoulder to shoulder looking at exhibits. In addition, all the animals will be more lively in the morning hours

And for those wine lovers, check out Vin de Syrah Wine Parlor. Its located underground and the atmosphere is very whimsical and unique. Wine selection and food is also great here.If you have children you are just minutes from the New Children's Museum, that caters to the imaginations of the little ones.
