Lots of money combined with a bad decorating era, bad decorating taste, and opulent excess = so bad it's good! A great pilgrimage to a one of a kind place. The house was originally built in 1939, and was a mansion of the time, but the original square footage is pretty average sized in today's opulent housing 'needs'. There have been plenty of additions, and outbuildings since the original was built. The tour only allows you to see the downstairs and basement of the house, which was disappointing.
There are a few choices for tours. We chose the Elvis VIP tour plus the airplanes, and that was perfect for us. We saw the house, plus the Disneyesque street, housing Elvis' outfits, cars, gold records, airplanes, and lots of places to shop. The diner offers fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches which were really good.

Collierville TN Historic District

Reviewed By Cvilltrvlr - Collierville, Tennessee

Weddings under the Gazebo, concerts on the square, a fun choice of great restaurants and shops to browse. All in a safe area. Check out the historical markers spread around the square and train. They even just built some new public bathrooms although they painted them a plain confederate gray color next to the civil war cannon. Kinda odd in today's world given the much nicer color scheme of the train depot right next to it. That aside, the area is definitely worth your time to visit.

Olive Branch City Park

The park has miles of walking trails, tennis courts, a running track, fishing lakes, softball fields, a pavilion, picnic tables, a nature trail, and plenty of parking. I love to go walking there and it is a very clean park except for the ducks and geese.

This was our first time trying an escape room. Everyone there was very friendly and helpful. The room was so much fun, but also very challenging. Very creative! We will definitely be back to try another room. I really recommend this activity for anyone looking for a unique adventure with their family and friends. We couldn't quit talking about it all the way home. :-)

This was my first time doing an escape room. I did not know that the "rooms" are different difficulty levels; apparently I selected the hardest difficulty room without knowing it. My family and I received no guidance whatsoever from the staff. We had no idea what to do or what was our assigned mission. On top of that, we were not given everything that we should have been given (objects necessary in order to actually figure out the clues in order to escape the room). I'm not sure if every location is like this or if just this particular location is not good. Either way, I would not recommend wasting your money at this location.

Cherokee Valley has a friendly staff and a nice variety of products available in the Pro Shop.
The fine folks at the grill have what you need to get you through your round with snacks as well as adult beverages.
The highlight though is the golf.
The course offers plenty of challenge, risk and reward. You can test your game from the back tees or have a relaxing round from the more forward tees. The differing elevations, twists and turns keep your attention and add variety. The practice areas are the best in the area whether your game needs work putting or off the tees.
The convenient location is close to shopping, dining and accommodations in the great little town of Olive Branch.

This was a birthday outing for my sister. It was suggested by my daughter. So the whole family went and we had a blast. The room was challenging but exciting. All and all we escaped!
