One of the last stops on our Great Southwestern Trek is the Peabody Hotel in Memphis, Tennessee. Nicknamed the “South’s Grand Hotel,” the Peabody opened in 1869 and is famous for its architectural beauty, historic charm, and legendary hospitality. The Peabody was put on the map, however, by it’s celebrity residents: the Peabody Ducks! Since the 1930’s, a group of dapper ducks exits the elevator and makes a daily march down a red carpet to splash in the lobby fountain twice a day. It’s an adorable event not to be missed! Quack.
