TravelPlex’s Destination of the Month for May takes you south to the city overlooking the bluffs, sometimes called the “River City”. We’re talking about Memphis.
Rising from the bluffs along the Mississippi River (thus its nickname), Memphis is Tennessee's largest city and the commercial and cultural center of the western part of the Volunteer state. The city is a combination of Southern tradition and modern efficiency, where old-fashioned paddle wheelers steam upriver past the city's most striking landmark, the gleaming, stainless-steel Pyramid Arena.
When you mention Memphis, one name springs to most minds: Elvis, the undisputed king of rock and roll. Elvis put Memphis on the map, recording his first hits here. His legacy burns bright at Graceland, the estate where he lived, died, and rests in peace. Elvis International Tribute Week, held each August at Graceland, has grown to match the myth.
In 2013 Forbes magazine ranked Memphis as one of the top 15 cities in the United States with an "emerging downtown" area. Known for great BBQ and jazz, Memphis is home to the St. Louis Cardinals AAA team, the Memphis Cardinals. Memphis is a great weekend getaway for any St. Louisian.

I have been working with TravelPlex for many years and I must say it has been a refreshing experience. Our travel needs often require instantaneous service, and they are always there for us. TravelPlex offers us great personal service, great pricing and a 24/7 hotline. To me, THAT equals a hat trick!

We’ve been with TravelPlex for over 20 years. The lone exception is when we left them for (a mega travel agency). It took us about a year before we realized that the personal service and attention that the TravelPlex staff just wasn’t there with (the mega agency). Neither was the savings (the mega agency) promised. We were so low on the totem pole that we were lucky if we ever had anyone contact us. But at TravelPlex, the staff always goes above and beyond to make sure we get the best prices and that our travelers are always taken care of. TravelPlex makes all our travelers feel like VIP’s, and that’s important – and rare!
Carrie Willard is the reason I keep coming back to Travelplex. She is "WONDERFUL". She is always so helpful and goes the extra step to make sure everything is satisfactory and done the way the customer wants it. She always has a smile on her face, which is even apparent over the phone. I have entrusted our vacations with Carrie now for 3yrs and could never imagine using anyone else to help us plan our trips. I have referred at least 5 of my friends to her, and they all have had nothing but glowing remarks about Carrie. She is an asset to your company and exemplifies the true meaning of "CUSTOMER SERVICE".
