|THIS IS NOT DUCK SIZED BUT ACTUALLY A 3 STORY HOUSE - THOSE LANTERNS ON EITHER SIDE ARE NORMAL SIZE|
As the ducks are so beloved, you'll find their likeness everywhere. In the room alone, we lost count - duck soaps, ducks on the towels, pillows, sheets, bathrobes... you get the picture.
My favorite was the duck atop the swizzle stick in each of our drinks.

The musicians on Beale Street are world class and the music plays...
Our last day was spent at the National Civil Rights Museum which is located at the site of the former Lorraine Motel. It was on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr was assassinated. They have converted the entire building into the museum which follows the fight for civil rights from the 1600's to the present day. They left two of the motel rooms (one occupied by Dr. King) preserved to look as they did on the day of the assassination. It was very moving to stand there and have that experience. I would recommend everyone go if they are in Memphis.
It was a fun weekend away for Mr. SV and I. Maybe next time we'll make it to Graceland. I'm already missing the BBQ. Yum.
