Memphis, the largest city in Tennessee, is best known for its rich musical culture. Musicians such as Elvis Presley, B.B. King, Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison, and Johnny Cash recorded in Memphis and shaped the modern music scene. The Memphis Walk of Fame in the Beale Street District honors Memphis musicians and composers.
Memphis has many museums featuring art, history, science, and music. The National Civil Rights Museum, located at the site of Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination, chronicles the history of the American civil rights movement. Graceland, home of Elvis Presley, features Elvis memorabilia and attracts over half a million visitors a year. The Pink Palace Museum, focusing on science, contains the country's third largest planetarium. The Brooks Museum of Art has a collection that includes artwork from the Italian Renaissance to the 20th century.
Memphis is also known for fantastic Southern cooking, especially slow-cooked barbecue, but if you prefer food with a more international flair, Memphis has restaurants that serve cuisine ranging from French to Mediterranean to Pacific Rim.
Whether you're looking for history, live music, great food, or just a walk through a beautiful city, Memphis offers something for any visitor.
