Come and explore Memphis, a lively city along the Mississippi River known as the home of Blues and famous for its contribution to the culture and history of the U.S.
This tour will take you through the city's downtown showing its must-see places. First, you will learn about the Blues Foundation, a nonprofit corporation with the mission to preserve blues heritage.
Then you will see the Halloran Center, a modern and cozy space hosting concerts and other events. You will also look at the jewel of Memphis, the famous Orpheum Theater, one of the few remaining "movie palaces" from the 1920s. Passing by the National Civil Rights Museum and Cotton Museum, you can go inside if you are interested in the topic.
Next, if you are a nature lover, there is a wonderful Mississippi River Park with breathtaking views of steep valleys and Court Square, a quiet green oasis with its own stories to tell.
After that, you will return to the urban areas, pass by a few historic landmarks and end up at the Beale Street Baptist Church, which gave rise to African‐American Baptist churches in the area. The tour will also guide you to a few more good-to-explore attractions and invite you to walk along iconic Beale Street, an entertainment district with strong ties to Blues Music, which flows from every corner.
