Graceland - Wikipedia

With more than 600,000 tourists who come to honor the King, Graceland is the country’s second most-visited historic residence. The amount of time spent at Graceland depends on how interested one is in Elvis; you might spend an hour doing a brief tour of the mansion and leaving, or you could spend the entire day exploring all the Elvis-related attractions. Special displays often change for individuals who are sincerely interested. The villa is a sizable family home, trapped in the 1970s as far as style is concerned. Elvis has a keen interest in interior design. Thus he had a big say in the decor selection for the house, particularly for the basement. 

Beale Street Historic District

Visit the Beale Street Entertainment District | Memphis Travel

At the start of the 20th century, Beale, formerly the hub of black-owned shops and nightclubs, became known as the “home of the blues” and a stop on the route from the Mississippi Delta to Chicago. Everyone who was anyone in the blues scene, including Blind Mississippi Morris, B.B. King, and Robert Johnson, has performed in these clubs, including W.C. Handy, who lived and worked nearby. The bars and eateries on Beale Street still dance to the blues today. Several hotels, museums, and restaurants can be reached within a short stroll of Beale Street, which is home to the NBA’s Grizzlies and right off the FedEx Forum. W.C. Handy’s house and museum are located at the east end of the street, and Blues fans can also visit the Center for Southern Folklore to learn more about the region’s folklore and storytelling. On a small stage in Handy Park, lunchtime and weekend concerts and some impromptu jam sessions are held. Try Alfred’s, Rum Boogie, or B.B. King’s for the best blues music.
