Highlights of a Free Tour in Memphis

Memphis is one of the meccas of music, but it’s also a famous tourist destination for its rich history. Located next to the Mississippi River, right where Arkansas, Mississippi, and Tennessee meet, the city had a prominent role in the history of slavery and the civil rights movement. Come and join a local guide for a trip around the past, present and future of this energetic city. Most Free Tours in Memphis will take guests to visit the iconic Graceland (the Home of Elvis Presley), Stax Museum of American Soul Music, and Sun Studio—the recording studio where Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash and many more legends forged the history of blues, gospel, country and rock’n’roll! Any Memphis Free Walking Tour will cover the National Civil Rights Museum – Lorraine Motel. A place where we can learn about the history of the racial equality movement. Finally, the Memphis Zoo is a must-visit place for families with kids.

Things to Do in Memphis

Memphis might well be one of the most active cities in the USA. Here you will find activities to please everybody, no matter your taste! Strolling along South Main Street tourists will find a culturally-rich area packed with art galleries, murals, hip restaurants, farmers’ markets and trendy shops. Also, the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art offers interesting exhibitions for a pay-what-you-can entry. And what to do at night? First, we recommend heading down to the Mississippi River for a very special light show. You will see the Hernando de Soto and Harahan bridges emblazoned with stunning LED lights. After that, head to Beale Street, where the first blues song was ever penned, and pick between the many restaurants, nightclubs, and live music venues in the area. Optionally, go to Overton Park Shell to enjoy outdoor performances in the iconic place where Elvis Presley offered his first professional rock ‘n’ roll show.
