Where is the safest place to stay in the Memphis area, within an hour or two of Graceland? We have a van full of belongings that we are moving and have been robbed in Memphis before when we traveled through so we are wary. We'd like to stay overnight and feel like our 'stuff' will be safe in the parking lot. Suggestions?

Travelling Friday 6th September from Memphis to New Orleans. The Amtrak train departs Memphis at 6:50 am and arrives New Orleans at 3:32 pm. It is an 8 hours 42 minutes journey and costs $58. The Greyhound bus departs Memphis at 9:30 am and arrives New Orleans at 8:30 pm. It is an 11 hours journey and costs $67.50. I'm undecided which one to go for, train leaves a bit early, but the bus gets there a bit late. Has anyone done this journey or can you give me the pros and cons for each? Where does the Greyhound bus leave from in Memphis and where does it arrive at in New Orleans. Similarly the Amtrak train, as I need to choose hotels that are fairly convenient.
Many thanks, Keith
Can anyone relay their experience in using the Long Term parking for the Memphis Amtrak station? Their long term parking now uses these services:
250 PEABODY PLACE GARAGE (EAST END OF PEABODY PLACE MALL) 901-545-0351 - TOWER GARAGE (WEST END OF PEABODY PLACE MALL) 901-528-9203 OR 901-527-7330
Memphis Cook Convention Center
255 North Main Street, Memphis, TN 38103
Do they run a shuttle from the parking to the station for early train travel? What were the rates per day for long term parking?
We'll be in Memphis is mid-April, and we're concerned with whether we can get good local food, given our food preferences. We like to think that we eat all kinds of food - Chinese, Mexican, Brazilian, Korean, French, Italian, Japanese, Greek, etc. - but we have a few things that we don't eat, including pork and fried foods. Unfortunately, the travel guides to Memphis seem to emphasize those foods as local specialties, including barbecue (ribs and pulled pork), soul food (even the vegetables are cooked with pork), and fried chicken. Of course we could find a Chinese restaurant, but what's the point of going to Memphis for that?
Can anyone recommend restaurants where we can get good local food, at reasonable prices, that isn't fried or based on pork? If not restaurants, maybe there are local specialties that we can look for on menus. Thanks.
I've just booked to visit Memphis in April 2013.Is there any special events going on in April.I'm keen to do all the touristy bits but are there any places to visit that's unusual.
Also can anyone confirm that you can visit such tourist places by foot or is there a distance between such places.
I am going to be staying in downtown Memphis. I plan on going to the Delta Fair located at 7777 Walnut Grove Road for one day only. To rent a car costs53. I do not see local transport that would take me there at the time in which I want to go. Approximately, how much would a cab cost?
