There are so many more things to do in Memphis than to worship music makers and feast on barbecued pork! It is a fabulous city that while being a music capital is full of eclectic neighborhoods and interesting attractions. Have a look at some of the things to do in Memphis and decide if you fancy a trip to America’s Mid-South.
You can’t say you’ve seen the attractions of Memphis without having made a visit to Graceland. Easily Memphis’s most popular attraction, the constant crowds attest to Elvis Presley’s enduring effect on fans and non-fans alike. Graceland served as Elvis’s home from 1956 to 1977, when he died. Self-guided audio tours lead you to numerous rooms decorated, as some people would say, outlandishly, including embellishments like fake waterfalls, a green shag ceiling, and vinyl walls. On the tour you’ll also get to see the “Lisa Marie” and the “Hound Dog,” two of Elvis’s private jets, as well as Elvis’s gravesite, where countless fans pay their respects and maybe shed a few tears.
