Getting Around in Memphis, TN

Getting around this vast sprawl of a city requires a vehicle. There is the Memphis Area Transit Authority, which runs bus service through downtown and to some outskirting areas, but the routes are sparsely serviced in the evenings. The only other option is a tourist-friendly trolley that just goes from downtown to midtown, for those who don’t want to leave the city center.

Music History

<p>Gimme some of the sweet, soulful, solemn blues music to soothe my soul. The heart of blues, gospel, rock, and country in America all trace their roots back to this musical city. With the likes of Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, and B.B. King getting their starts in this city during the 50&Otilde;s and 60's, it's no wonder so many people visit here to pay tribute to the legends, past and present. You can dig through some Motown records at Stax, or hang out on Beale Street grooving to some Otis Redding as you stroll down the lane. It's a beautiful and soulful city, and its musical history is a testament to that.</p>

National Civil Right Museum

<p>Looking to learn a little more about the past of this great city? There are dozens of fantastic museums, which cover topics from the Civil Rights crusade to Rock 'n Roll. It's a city steeped in history, and you'll be hard pressed not to find it around ever corner in the architecture of the buildings and the memorials to the musicians of late. The National Civil Rights Museum, which was built out of the Lorraine Motel where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was shot, is not to be missed.</p>

Elvis's Legacy

<p>How can you mention Memphis without mentioning the King? Elvis Presley was just that, and he decided to build his kingdom here. The sprawling site features things such as customized private airplanes, a huge vintage automobile collection, gold records adorning the walls, costumes from the king's heyday, and so much more. It&Otilde;s definitely not to be missed, even if some people consider it kitsch. You can even see the place he was put to rest (supposedly) on the property, and make sure you're aware when the locals celebrate Elvis Week, so you can remember to carry a candle in case you get swept up in the vigil on the anniversary of his death.</p>
