As you'd expect, sightseeing is the order of the day on a trip to Memphis, and you'll enjoy embarking upon those centred on music, the arts, and food - and that's just for starters. The Mud Island Riverwalk is a fascinating glimpse into the Mississippi River's influence over the city, while biking the Greenline, visiting the Crystal Shine Grotto, and dance classes for a variety of genres are popular. Younger family members will adore the daily duck parades at Peabody Hotel.
In addition to its rich cultural heritage, Memphis is also known for its cuisine, which is more akin to soul food than you're ever likely to get. Memphis boasts the World Championship Barbeque Cooking Contest, which is held every May, and the city's BBQ style is renowned across the US. The city is also beloved for pizza, huge burgers and fine dining, and several renowned chefs have come to settle here. You're never far from a hearty meal, and portions are suitably generous.
Memphis is a haven for fans of music of every genre, and of course no visit would be complete without a trip to Graceland, the home of the King; Sun Studio, considered one of the birthplaces of rock'n'roll, the Rock '˜n' Soul Museum, and Beale Street Historic District. This beautiful city has so much else to give, though, and other popular tourist sights include the National Civil Rights Museum, Memphis Zoo, the Botanical Gardens and Autozone Park, where it's baseball that's king.
