Memphis is home to Sun Studios, where Elvis and many others recorded; Graceland; and Confederate Park. Memphis is also home to the Pink Palace Museum and Planetarium, which is located on the site where the first Piggly Wiggly grocery store was founded. We also have the Brooks Museum of Art, located in the beautiful Overton Park, and the Dixon Art Gallery and Gardens. Downtown is also the home to the newly renovated South Main Arts District. Here you will find locally owned galleries and shops, restaurants, and clubs. It's definitely worth the time to check out!

And I know you are thinking - you forgot Beale Street. Well, here it is: Beale Street is a 4-block radius of bars, shops, and clubs. It’s great if you have money, as the drinks are quite pricey ($5 for a beer and up to $10 for a mixed drink). The one advantage is that you can walk on the street with your beers. Beale Street is more of a tourist site, with Hard Rock Cafe and Wet Willie's, so most locals avoid the traffic and heavy police presence, but it is worth checking out.
