Mid-South Staycation Guide 

Enjoy a getaway close to home.

It's summertime, and the living is easy. Everyone loves to plan a getaway — maybe a vacation at the beach or in the mountains, or maybe a long-awaited trip to Europe. But vacations pass quickly, and soon, here you are, back in Memphis, Tennessee. But happily for us, that doesn't mean our vacation has to end. These fine Flyer advertisers have got some great ideas to spice up your summer without ever having to leave the Mid-South. Relax at a local resort or hotel, ride a bike, enjoy a casino outing, take in a museum. The options are endless, and so is your vacation, if you do it right.
