Welcome to Memphis, the Home of the Blues and the Birthplace of Rock 'n' Roll!
Beale Street has been playing the blues for more than half a century. During the past 20 years it has grown into one of the hottest entertainment districts in the country.
Graceland, in southern Shelby County, was the home of Elvis Presley and tours are offered year-round. Memphis Botanic Garden strives to enhance lives by connecting people with nature, increasing awareness and appreciation of our environment. This 96-acre property includes 23 specialty gardens, which provide an in-depth look into various families of plants, flowers, and trees. My Big Backyard family garden offers a place for jumping, splashing, digging, creating, and discovering the joys of time spent outdoors. The renowned Seijaku-en, Japanese Garden of Tranquility, is a popular attraction, with its recognizable red drum bridge and unique cultural features.
Memphis Rock 'n' Soul is located in the Beale Street Entertainment District, just a half a block south of Beale Street and Third Street, on the second floor of the new Gibson Guitar Factory. Six galleries examine the history of Memphis music and its impact on cultural change.
The lowest point in the state of Tennessee is located on the Mississippi River in Shelby County (just outside the Memphis city limits), where the river flows out of Tennessee and into Mississippi.
