Family Reunion Fun in Memphis

Did Uncle Billy and Aunt Sally stick you with the task of planning your family’s reunion? Have no fear, because we’ve got you covered. Look no further than Memphis, Tennessee, a destination filled with lively music, delicious food, cultural impact and everything else you’ll need to host a fantastic family gathering.

Feed the Troops
Memphis is known for having delicious barbecue and Southern soul food. If that’s what you’re looking for, then get your grub on at The Rendezvous, which consistently wins awards for having the best ribs in town. Visit Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken for, well, fried chicken, of course. If you want to dress up a little bit, try settling in for a nice dinner at Felicia Suzanne’s. Need a catered event? Not a problem. Huey’s can bring a casual feast to your family at the location of your choice.

Keep People Busy
Grab the kids and head over to the Memphis Zoo for some great family fun. Often voted as the top zoo in the country, the Memphis Zoo is one of only four zoos in the United States that houses giant pandas. If music is your bag, then add a trip to the Stax Museum of American Soul Music to your itinerary. Take a stroll down Beale Street. This world-famous avenue is great for families during the day and offers excellent bars and entertainment for adults when the sun goes down, like Silky O’Sullivan’s or B.B. King’s Blues Club.

Enjoy the Great Outdoors
If you need to burn off some extra energy, Memphis has tons of great outdoor space. Visit Shelby Farms Park, one of the largest city parks in the United States; it even has an off-leash dog park if you bring your four-legged family members. Overton Park in Midtown offers several covered areas that would be perfect for a big family barbecue just like the ones you used to have when you were a kid.

Shop 'Til You Drop
South Main has tons of great clothing boutiques and vitange finds to fit all budgets. Check out the Tanger Outlet in Southhaven and shop 'til you drop or for uniquely Memphis upscale apparel, visit Lansky 126. If you need to make goodie bags for your event’s attendees, then A. Schwab is the place to go for all of your Memphis-themed swag.
