Named the most iconic street in the United States, Beale is the official Home of the Blues and the perfect destination for shopping, dining, street entertainment, nightlife and a unique experience that you can only find in Memphis.
Mud Island
Take the monorail across the river and you'll find a resort-like community, shops, restaurants and an award-winning luxury hotel. But don't leave without visiting Mud Island River Park, home to a museum and park overlooking the river.
This line of mansions along Adams grew during the booming heyday of the mid- to late-1800s. Today, "Millionaire's Row" is home to museums, venues, a bed & breakfast and a swanky secret lounge.
Located where Downtown becomes Midtown, join visitors from all over the world who want to stand in the studio where Rock 'n' Roll was first created. Down the street you'll discover shops with hand-made gifts and local brews from coffee to beer.
