Enjoy the duck parade in the main lobby every morning and the amazing hotel (the oldest in the south). Also, the hotel has a lovely cocktail bar.
The Peabody is probably best known around the world for a custom dating back to the 1930s. The General Manager of the time, Frank Schutt, had just returned from a weekend hunting trip in Arkansas. He and his friends found it amusing to leave their live decoy ducks in the hotel fountain. The guests…
The famous Peabody ducks!! If you have kids they will really love seeing the ducks. The hotel is gorgeous and you can sit and have a fancy evening cocktail. Rooftop parties also!
Historic hotel in the heart of downtown. Catch the “duck show” daily at 11 am and 5 p.m, but get there early because it gets crowded!
Watch the Peabody Ducks. At 11am the ducks arrow down the red carpet. Also at 5 pm they go back up.

“Over 60 years ago in the small community of Mason, Tennessee, Napoleon “Na” Vanderbilt created something amazing – fried chicken that could unite a community. In an era of divisive racial attitudes the residents of Mason found that they could all – black and white – agree on how much they loved Na’s fried chicken. Such an amazing feat did not occur overnight. After experimenting for several years in a local tavern, Na and his wife, Ms. Maggie, began selling their chicken, sandwiched between two slices of white bread, out of the back door of the tavern. As demand grew, Na and Maggie were encouraged by local residents to build a freestanding restaurant. Unfortunately, the Vanderbilt’s were of modest means and could not afford such an expansion; however, generous, chicken loving locals offered to supply them with the materials necessary to build their own restaurant. Na, a skilled carpenter, built the restaurant on a piece of land he and Ms. Maggie owned on Highway 70 in Mason. Maggie’s Short Orders opened its doors in 1973. The building still stands today and still serves Na and Maggie’s amazing fried chicken.”
