Would you believe that Memphis, Tennessee is right on the Mississippi River? It is and I was excited to see the river. It was wide and muddy and you could see across the Mississippi river to Arkansas on the other side. Why not take a riverboat ride on the river and see the sights from the water? This was the “Memphis Queen” that gave tours daily from the docks of the river. She was beautiful and had multiple decks to enjoy the views of Memphis.
