Hound Gem: South Main Arts District, Memphis
What can we say? South Main Arts District has everything from shops to art to food. Located in downtown Memphis, it gives you a different vibe from Beale Street, but another very cool area to visit while you’re in town.
If you’re looking to hit up a few shops, go right ahead! 99% of South Main’s shops are locally-owned. Sweet, right? As you know, shopping can make us quite hungry, but worry not – there are several restaurants to try out. You won’t find restaurant chains, but you will find all locally-operated food spots. There’s no better love than hometown love!
In between eating and shopping, remember to indulge in some history. From the National Civil Rights Museum to the Orpheum Theater, the selection is far from dull. Lastly, the art lover in you won’t leave disappointed either. You’ll find galleries and theaters that’ll make you want to stay even longer.
