Foursquare Tips

  • Watch the famous Peabody Ducks walking over the red carpet to the Peabody fountain, every day at 11 am and 5 pm.
  • The ducks march at 11AM and 5PM, but get there 30 minutes early if you want a primo spot along the red carpet. Or head up to the south side of the Mezzanine for a bird's eye view.
  • Check out the bar in this great old hotel! You never know who you might run into...I met Page and Plant one night!
  • Very grand. Try the Peking duck lol!!
  • Come see the duck march! Be sure to say hi to the duck master afterwards.
  • If you go to see the duck march, grab a standing spot on the Mezzanine - the view is great, and it's less crowded.
  • Duck march is not to be missed. The rooftop is not to be missed either with it's great views.
  • Check out the Memorabilia Room on the mezzanine. You'll find all sorts of treasures including Elvis Presley's 1st record contract w/ RCA on Peabody stationary.
  • Located in the heart of downtown Memphis and famously known for the "Peabody Ducks," the Peabody Hotel was built in 1869 by Robert Campbell Brinkley. It is named after George Peabody.
  • The ducks are dope.
  • The luxurious Peabody hotel known for the marching Peabody ducks. It is a very nice hotel to stay in.
  • Of course the ducks are worth a trip. But, the architecture and detailed appointment of this grand old downtown hotel is worth a visit all on its own.
  • Check out the swastikas and German iron crosses they left in the tile inside the Memorabilia Room on the Mezzanine Level. A tribute to Nazi Germany?
  • The duck March can't be missed!
  • The ducks. too funny. Disclosure. I am a "tourist" in Memphis. Actually live in Jackson MS. Stuff I add will be touristy.
  • weird place. A duck craps on the floor and nobody cares but I fart on the elevator and everyone is all offended.
  • LATE NIGHT EATS: If you are looking for a food option after all the Peabody restaurants are shut down there is a great restaurant/bar across the street called Kooky Canuck that is open until 2:30a.
  • The Peabody Ducks have appeared on "The Tonight Show," "Sesame Street," "The Oprah Winfrey Show," in "People" magazine, and in the "Sports Illustrated" swimsuit issue.
  • If anything, stop here for a cocktail. People watching is great, and the atmosphere will make you feel fancy and fabulous.
  • Make sure you check out the ducks at 5pm!
