The Peabody lobby is beautiful! Get there early, sip a nice cocktail or tea while you wait for the fun to begin. This is becoming more and more popular, so getting a good seat, close to the fountain with a view of the elevators is key!

You have to see this. Not only the duck march, which is hilarious, but the Peabody Hotel is incredible. Don't miss this if you are in Memphis.
