Memphis & Beale Street
The Birthplace of the Blues & Sun Records
Memphis – a city known as the birthplace of the blues thanks to Beale Street, Sun Studio, Graceland, and it being the hometown of the legendary B.B. King. With so many things to see and do, it’s hard to know where to start in one of Tennessee's most rockin’ cities.
Visit Beale Street in downtown Memphis – that famed two-mile street stretching from East Street to the Mississippi River. A Tennessee staple since 1841, Beale Street invites travelers to visit blues clubs and restaurants like the Blues City Café & the Band Box, and Miss Polly's Soul City Café – or catch the Beale Street Music Festival.
Elvis fan? Memphis is your town. Home to such King of Rock attractions like the historic Sun Records location and Graceland, Memphis offers days of exploration fit for every fan of rock ‘n roll. Since 1952, Sun Records has recorded iconic musicians like Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, and Roy Orbison. For an actual experience, visit Graceland, found 10 miles from downtown Memphis. Tour this famed mansion, and stop for lunch at Rockabilly's Diner.
