This lay of the land offers countless experiences and adventures of your choosing. Blues, soul, rock 'n' roll–it all started in Memphis–so pay homage to the originals. Of course you'll explore Beale Street but dive a little further into neighborhood listening rooms, stages under the stars, Civil Rights landmarks and historic mansions. Chill to a view of the Mississippi River or cruise above it by bike. Channel the energy of the city–whether or not the Grizzlies are playing, whether or not there's a festival happening (though your chances are good). Bring the kids along, or not – our zoo's a fun stop either way. Feed your soul by sampling our deep culinary traditions and some surprising fusions of flavor. Because in Memphis, the magic is in the mix, and each neighborhood offers a whole new spread of possibilities. 

A resource for what’s going on in Memphis: music, food, arts, events, sports, people and culture written from a local perspective. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.
