It's time someone said it: The Memphis Zoo is the Kanye West of Memphis tourist attractions. The Zoo innovates. It may be controversial, but the Zoo doesn't wait for progress to come to them. Where other institutions said, "You can't park there because that is not a parking space," the Memphis Zoo effectively said, "You can park anywhere you damn well please. You are a Zoo patron, and Zoo patrons make their own fates."
We hear you, Memphis Zoo. We have captured your innovative spirit and come up with a list of the other best (currently untapped) Memphis parking spots.
~ ~The Ultimate Best Undiscovered Parking Spots in Memphis~ ~
1. Elvis's Grave at Graceland
When are we all gonna wake up and smell the peanut butter banana honey bacon sandwiches? He's been dead a long time. It's high time we should be able to park on this sweet patch of land.
2. The Lobby of the Peabody Hotel
Ducks should be on a menu, not on a red carpet. What should be on a red carpet is a brand new SUV.
When things are right with the world:
3. Inside the Orpheum Theater
This is a no-brainer. Downtown parking is packed. People sometimes have to walk blocks (whole blocks!) to their destination. The solution is clear.
4. The FedExForum
We grind hard. So why should we be forced to park in a neighboring garage? Why should we be made miserable, like people who don't know our rights?
Just look at this sad image: Now look at this happy one:
Case closed. Park wild, Memphis.
