Q. Is Downtown Memphis walkable?
A. The quick answer is yes. But, for more detail...  From  Bass Pro Shops at the Pyramid (located on the north end of downtown) to the Amtrak Memphis Central Station (at the south end) is a mere three miles making walking in Memphis very doable. Along that three-mile route, you have easy access to many attractions, restaurants and hotels. Additionally, a fleet of hybrid electric bus run along Main Street and the Riverfront. Because downtown is safe, you will see visitors and residents hopping from a Memphis Redbirds game at AutoZone Park to club hopping on Beale Street to FedExForum to catch a Grizzlies game.

Q. Can you recommend a group transportation company?
