Music creates great memories for most people, especially the music of our youth. Thankfully for music fans, thousands of music memories are being amassed in specialty museums across the country.
Fans of the Southern Rock group, The Allman Brothers Band, will be excited that the band’s original home will open as a museum in December of 2009. Called The Big House, this old Tudor-style mansion in residential Macon, Georgia, was the band’s home for many years.
When the Allman Brothers Band Museum opens, it will contain the world’s largest collection of Allman Brothers Band memorabilia. It will also be less than six miles from the Extended Stay Deluxe Macon – North hotel.
If Southern Rock just isn’t your style of music, don’t worry. There are plenty of great music history venues across America, and most are near Extended Stay Hotels. For instance, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio, keeps delights visitors with both permanent and temporary collections of some amazing bits of rock music history. Current displays include Johnny Cash’s bus, the Michael Jackson Memorial Wall and a tribute to the 40th anniversary of Woodstock. Cleveland also has seven great Extended Stay Hotels.
If the sounds of the “Motor City” are more your style, plan to visit Detroit’s Motown Historical Museum. Whether your favorite artist was Marvin Gaye, the Jackson 5 or the Supremes, this is a must see museum for Motown music fans. Comfortable accommodations are just 10 miles away at the Extended Stay America Detroit – Dearborn hotel.
If you can’t decide between Rock and Soul music, Memphis offers the Memphis Rock n Soul Museum. According to the museum website, the digital audio guide includes “over 100 songs, and takes visitors at their own pace through seven galleries featuring 3 audio visual programs, more than 30 instruments, 40 costumes and other musical treasures.”
Extended Stay Hotels has eight hotels in Memphis, but the Homestead Studio Suites Memphis – Airport hotel is just eight miles from the Rock n Soul Museum.
Museums, like those described above, can be a great way to spend weekends and evenings whether you are on vacation or taking a break during business travel. Let this sort of relaxing entertainment refresh your mind as a comfortable Extended Stay Hotels studio room relaxes your body.
