Our trip started early Sunday morning. We have hotels already planned out for our entire trip so we know each day where and when we are stopping. Our first day was to drive to Memphis. For me when I hear Memphis I think BBQ and Elvis. So we found a local hole in the wall. The food was delicious however we felt like we had to eat fast and leave because we had to illegally park in the McDonald's parking lot next to Corky's because there was no parking at Corky's. After our stomachs were full, we headed to Graceland. We didn't really do any research on it so we didn't know what to expect. We got their 45 minutes before closing...paid $10 for parking and when we asked about touring the house, we found out it cost $30 a person. Wow... that was a shocker... especially since none of us were big Elvis fans. So instead we walked around in the gift shops and took some pictures to prove we made it to Graceland.
Our second day driving took us as far as Oklahoma City. This drive was around 7 hours and when we arrived we were all tired and hungry. We stayed at a Wyndham Garden Hotel and we were impressed. It had a beautiful atrium were we played one game of hand and foot before we decided to go to bed.
We ate lunch/dinner at Kona Ranch Restaurant which was right next to the hotel.
