Visit Memphis on a Budget
Memphis is arguably the USA’s best destination for music fans, but it also boasts the nation’s finest BBQ scene, the atmospheric South Main Historic District, an assortment of world-class museums, and an enviable position overlooking the Mississippi River.
As the largest city in Tennessee, Memphis has long been an essential stop on any exploration of the southern USA. At one point, the city was the world’s largest cash market for cotton. Later it became known as a hotbed of civil rights activism, particularly during the 1960s Civil Rights Movement.
In modern day Memphis, the past is honoured with immense care and pride, but the city is also forward-looking and progressive. Much has been done to revitalise formerly tired areas, and there’s a real sense of energy on every downtown corner.
