Day 4 - Memphis Sightseeing
Spend the day sightseeing on Beale Street,
voted the most iconic street in America by USA Today. Beale Street
runs from the Mississippi River to East Street, nearly two miles of
blues clubs and restaurants that make it one of the top tourist
attractions in Memphis. Drive through Victorian Village, a historic
neighborhood with homes that were built in the 1800s. Pass by the
statues of B.B. King and Elvis Presley as well as the National
Civil Rights Museum at the Lorraine Hotel, where Martin Luther
King, Jr. was assassinated.
Take a tour of Sun Studio, where Elvis
Pressley recorded his first song, and many other icons got their
start. Hear the voices of musicians that still haunt this studio,
as you listen to outtakes from recording sessions and feel the
energy of the music created here.
The rest of the day is at leisure to
explore Memphis independently. Overnight Memphis.
