Places in Memphis you need to visit

Arguably the music capital of the US and home to the legendary Elvis Presley, Memphis is quickly becoming a popular tourist destination since the release of 2022’s biographic of the King of Rock.

If you’re looking to explore the states, here’s a list of must see destinations to visit in Memphis.

Music attractions

The home of Blues, Soul and Rock ‘n’ Roll, live music rocks the streets seven days a week in the legendary Beale Street, and iconic music attractions from The Blue’s Foundation’s Blues Hall of Fame, Sun Studio, and Stax Museum of American Soul Music.

If you can only make time for one, make it Sun Studio. Known as the birthplace of Rock ‘n’ Roll, it was the spot where Elvis, Roy Orbison and Johnny Cash all recorded some of their biggest hits. There’s plenty of incredible original pieces used by the million dollar artists, but one of our favourites is Elvis’ microphone. Live your rock star dream and have a sing on it.

Elvis Presley’s Graceland

Of course, we have to mention early on the iconic home of Elvis Presley, Graceland. Originally built in 1982 the area is over 17,500sqft and only 15 minutes from downtown Memphis.

Now open to the public, with tours almost every day it’s a must-see for not only die-hard Elvis fans, but also people looking to explore beautiful architecture. For something extra special, make sure you hop on board the Lisa Marie Jet that’s parked right outside.

Visit the stunning homes of Victorian Village

A street that takes you back in time. Originally just on the outskirts of Memphis, but as time went by slowly became a part of eastern midtown. The area includes stunning old-timey homes like Mageveney House, the Mallory-Neely House and Woodruff-Fontaine House. It’s the perfect place for history buffs to get lost in.

Get your fill at Central BBQ

Central BBQ is something of an institution in Memphis and serves some of the tastiest ribs in all of Tennessee. Based in three locations across the city, you’re never far from enjoying some of the best of southern cuisine, though make sure you give yourself plenty of time. It’s a popular place to eat so queues are common.

Party with ducks at The Peabody Hotel

The Peabody Hotel is possibly the most famous hotel in Memphis, and one of our favourite locations. Firstly, because the hotel has a duck march (yes, really) where the resident mallards walk out and into the fountain on their very own little red carpet. They can be seen every day at 11am and 5pm, a tradition that goes back 80 years and is adorable!

Secondly because it’s a great party spot. Peabody Rooftop parties bring some of the best Tennessean artists and local bands and provide some of the liveliest entertainment. Revel in the atmosphere with your drink of choice and let your hair down.
