It was labor day weekend (September) and the weather was gorgeous in Memphis, the spot where we decided to spend the holiday weekend. We arrived in Memphis late afternoon so the weather was still nice and toasty. We headed up to our hotel, the Madison Hotel and was greeted by the friendly staff and grabbed our keys and checked out our rooms. The hotel was gorgeous, clean, sleek and modern, with lots of amenities such as a rooftop bar with great views of the city and a unique restaurant that offers cuisine with some southern flair. Although we liked the digs and found the hotel relaxing, we wanted to really take in all that was Memphis during this short holiday weekend so we headed out to explore.
