Beale Street is in the heart of Downtown Memphis and dates back to 1841. It inspired W.C. Handy's "Beale Street Blues." It was where B.B. King's Blues Club calls home. It has welcomed everything from bars and nightclubs to gamblers and musicians. Beale Street was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1966 and was officially declared the Home of the Blues by an act of Congress in 1977.

While on the street, don't miss local favorites, the Beale Street Flippers as they do acrobatic stunts you have to see to believe. Also, tour the home of W.C. Handy (the Father of the Blues) and enjoy outdoor concerts at the W.C. Handy Park.
