It seems people here can never have enough places to go, food to eat and things to do in Memphis so I just decided to list them.
1. Enjoy Beale Street – heart and soul of the Memphis culture. Experience the buzzing as the night becomes alive between Second and Fourth streets with numerous live music clubs opening their doors to music fans of all types while stores and restaurants rule during the day. Beale St is also home to Orpheum Theater, W.C Handy House Museum and the New Daisy Theatre.
2. Graceland – who doesn’t know Elvis Presley? Whether a fan or not, his private estate is a must see.
3. Visit Museums – whether a music museum (Memphis Rock n Soul Museum, Stax Museum of American Soul, Sun Studio ) historic museum (Slave Haven Underground Railroad Museum) a pink museum for the kids (Pink Palace)
4.Peabody Ducks Red Carpet – catch the marching of the peabody ducks as they waddle the red carpet at the Peabody Hotel.
5.Shelby Farms – if you are a nature guy, you will love this. 4500 acres of green space, 10.65 miles of urban trail. It’s a community treasure, unrivaled in size and potential anywhere else in United States. The park has recently opened major improvements that will give the park more amenities, more adventures, healthier ecology and a lot more to love.
6.Memphis Zoo – for the kids and kids at heart. This conservatory is home to 3500 animals. Meet a new animal and adopt one too. Witness Zoo Light Nights while you skate on their 5400 sq ft ice skating rink.
7.Mud Island River Park – there is no place to enjoy the Mississippi River than at the Mud Island River Park. Picnic grounds, bikes, kayaks and paddleboats are also available for rent. You can stare at its uniqueness for hours for a quick escape from the busy life.
8.Bike the Greenline. Be ready to ride the paved, protected bike paths of the Greenline. The path stretches seven miles from Overton Park to Shelby Farms. Enjoy views of the Wolf River portion of the trail and be on the lookout for public art on the Hampline.
9. Overton Park Old Forest Trail Hikes. Take a guided hike of the Old Forest State Natural Area where you’ll find a hundred-year-old trees, plants and wildlife you can venture through on five miles of paved and unpaved trails. Overton Park is also home to playgrounds and a dog park – all free to enjoy every day of the year.
10.Beautiful sunsets over the river. Watch a neon-pink sun set over the Mississippi River from the grounds of the Metal Museum. Access to the grounds of the Metal Museum is always free and features a sculpture garden, full-functioning blacksmith and foundry shop.
11.Watch Memphis Grizzlies and Tigers games – for the sport man in you.
