Memphis is the Birthplace of Rock ‘n’ Roll, the Home of the Blues and the starting point of soul. Music legends including Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, B.B. King, W.C. Handy and Otis Redding made their marks on Memphis, where you can hear their influences today. To complete the “musical medley,” visit Graceland, Sun Studio, the Stax Museum of American Soul Music and the Memphis Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum. At night, take a walk down Beale Street and listen to the live music Memphis makes today.
Memphis is a great place for families, have fun with everyone from your toddler to your grandmother. There’s the Children’s Museum of Memphis and the march of the famous Peabody Ducks (both perfect for little ones), picnicking and bison-watching at Shelby Farms Park, and even more animals, including giant pandas, at Memphis Zoo. Everyone will enjoy taking a relaxing riverboat cruise along the Mississippi, having (indoor) outdoor adventures at Bass Pro Shops at the Pyramid, touring Elvis’ Graceland and strolling Beale Street.
You'll have easy access to all this and more when you make our apartments at the Tennessee Brewery in Downtown Memphis your home.
