Exploring Memphis

Upon my arrival in Memphis, Tennessee for college, I was surprised at how many interesting sights there are in such a city. Memphis is a decently-sized city with many nooks and crannies.

I chose to travel all the way from Orlando, Florida to Memphis, Tennessee. Why? I decided that I would attend college there.

Anyway, I had to pack up all of my belongings so that I could travel to a new city. After the 14-hour car ride, I was ready to get out of the car! However, my dad and I stayed in the car and explored the new city of Memphis since we had some spare time.

Coming to a new city makes everything seem wonderful and unique! I was very impressed with the interesting buildings and little shops. We made our way to the zoo at one point. I LOVE the Memphis Zoo. The only zoo I remember going to as a child was tiny but this zoo is HUGE! I was very excited to see all of the various animals, including the pandas. We were able to see them for free, but I think they normally charge $3.

Memphis is filled with little places full of fun and yummy, yummy food. Do come for a visit! :)
