Memphis

Overview

  • Flight Time: 9 Hours
  • Time Zone: UTC -6:00
  • Best Time to Travel: January - December

Known as the birthplace of rock ‘n roll and blues, Memphis is home to Graceland, served as a recording base for artists like Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis; plus, its famous Beale Street was the location of the first blues notes. Key locations during the 1960’s Civil Rights Movement help make Memphis a sacred pilgrimage for Martin Luther King admirers.

Situated on a high bluff overlooking the muddy Mississippi River, the city of Memphis is well known for its historical and cultural contributions to the American South. Trace the path of American music in Memphis, exploring Beale Street, where the first Blues song was written and where you can still immerse yourself in the music scene. Then follow the crowds to Graceland, former home to the original hip shaker himself, Elvis. After the White House, Graceland is the most visited residence in the US.

Take a break from the music to explore Memphis' art scene. The South Main Historic Arts District is packed with art galleries, restaurants, open markets, and shops. Discover what makes Memphis unique on a riverboat cruise, a tour of the nearby Jack Daniel Distillery, or even with a visit to a voodoo shop. And don't miss the chance to see the march of the Peabody Hotel ducks as they make their way to and from the lobby fountain each day.
