About these ratings

Originally constructed in 1869, the Peabody Hotel has held a long-standing reputation as one of the finest hotels in the South. And while the building itself is quite breathtaking, the real attraction here is the march of the Peabody Ducks. Visit around 11 a.m., when the ducks make their way from their rooftop suite down the red carpet through the hotel lobby and into the Peabody Fountain where they spend their day splashing about. Join the onlookers that gather along the carpet to tap their toes to the beat of John Philip Sousa's King Cotton March as the ducks waddle past. At 5 p.m., the tune picks up again and the ducks hop out of the fountain and make their way back along the red carpet to their home. Since the 1930's, Peabody Ducks have been a staple feature of this historic hotel.
