CITY FUN

Memphis offers true Southern charm and a rich history of Civil Rights activism at the corner of Tennessee, Mississippi, and Arkansas. The city is known for its delicious barbecue cuisine, which is best polished off with a glass of sweet tea. You can also take your sweet tea out on a pontoon boat on the Mississippi River, or enjoy it while experiencing the city’s vibrant nightlife and live music.

Music lovers should be sure to visit attractions celebrating the history of great American music, including the Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum, the Memphis Hall of Fame, and Graceland, the home of rock ‘n’ roll legend Elvis Presley. Memphis is also proud to be home to the National Civil Rights Museum, located at the Lorraine Motel in Downtown Memphis. There, you can learn about the Civil Rights Movement’s history in Memphis and the lasting impact it has had on the city.

Getting Around

You’ll need a car to get to downtown Memphis. However, once you’re there, trolley buses provide a fun, easy way to get around. Walking tours of the city and riverboat rides along the Mississippi are also highly recommended for weekend recreation.
