Come to Memphis for Graceland and the barbecue. Stay because you got murdered.

The area immediately north of Bass Pro Shop is a ghetto, literally. And when I say immediately north, i mean in the next 500 yards. Same for the entire area surrounding Graceland. Be careful and do not vary from the beaten path in the least when visiting either of these attractions. Two people sitting outside at a bar across from Bass Pro Shops were shot in broad daylight last year by a criminal who proceeded to steal a car at Bass Pro Shops, then drive it downtown past the Peabody Hotel, hitting and killing a police officer in the process.

As for these hotels, good luck getting a room at Big Cypress Lodge for $180.
