Post Card Tuesday: Hotel Peabody



The South's Finest - One of America's Best Hotels
Hotel Peabody - Memphis, TN

The Peabody is perhaps the most famous hotel in all of Tennessee, as it's located in the downtown area of Tennessee's largest city.  While it's famous, it may not be famous for being the finest.  Instead, their famous for the Peabody Ducks.  Every day, the Duckmaster - a position which is taken seriously - makes sure the ducks march their way to their rightful place in the fountain at 11 a.m. and then back upstairs at 5 p.m.

Sadly, this isn't a Tennessee tradition I haven't been able to see firsthand yet.  Luckily, my mom was willing to share this photo she took about 15 years ago as they strutted down the red carpet.

The Peabody website has the entire story as well as some fun facts about their noted practice.
