Eager to take a bite out of this town? In addition to the many Memphis pet-friendly hotels, there are dozens of restaurants in town that are more than happy have you and your four-legged friend as guests. Here are a few of our top suggestions:
Getting to Graceland from downtown Memphis is a breeze thanks to the proximity of Elvis’s estate to the birthplace of rock ‘n’ roll. If you’ve got your own set of wheels, you and your pup can simply take I-40 E for a mile or so, then cruise down I-69 just 9 more miles until you arrive at the King’s palace.
If you’d rather take public transportation to Graceland, hopping aboard a southbound shuttle couldn’t be easier. The Memphis Area Transit Authority welcomes you and your furry friend onboard local buses, shuttles, and trolleys but there are some caveats. Service animals can accompany you just as they are, but all other creatures must be in some sort of carrier before bringing them onto any public vehicle.
Be forewarned that in the eyes of Graceland, your canine companion ain’t nothing but a hound dog and is not allowed on the grounds. So plan ahead for a doggie day care in the Graceland area or leave your hunka burning love at the hotel until you’ve gotten your Elvis fix.
