Stroll along the river
The Mississippi River is perfect for a couple strolling arm-in-arm and relaxing in the quietude and peacefulness of the scene -- oh, hell who are we kidding! The point is it’s free. Plus, sunsets make for a particularly romantic tableau along the river.
Relax on the rooftop at the Peabody and Madison
While we’re on the subject of taking in the sights, few are as memorable as Downtown from up high. The rooftops of the Peabody and Madison hotels afford sweeping river views, and be sure to indulge in cocktails at Madison’s Twilight Sky Terrace.
Memphis still has a drive-in movie theater, which is open on the weekends after sunset. Pull up, park the car, and catch a double feature after the sun goes down. Plus, you can bring your own blanket, food, and drink, and you don't have to worry about cell phones or your cousin Tevin whisper-talking through the final scene and distracting you.
