Memphis Airport Guide

If you do nothing else during your stay in Memphis, go to Graceland to see the former home of Elvis Presley. Marvel at the opulence of the place then consider whether all this wealth made the king happy. For another musical treat, spend an evening in world famous Beale Street where Blues is said to have been born. The bars of the street are renowned for their live music so pull up a chair, grab a beer and listen to the stars of tomorrow.

Mud Island River Park is fun too, there’s a scale model of the Mississippi River and you can wade along it before hiring a boat to row around the ‘Gulf of Mexico’!

Memphis Info

Memphis began as a Spanish fort which was dismantled when the Spanish left. It didn’t rise from the dust again until 1819 when it soon became important as a trading post in a flood free area of the Mississippi. It soon grew again with the expansion of the cotton trade and was a major market for African slaves. In more recent times its cultural side has come to the fore with the birth and development of Blues music and the residency of the king of rock and roll; Elvis Presley.
