There's lots more to do: don't miss a visit to Graceland, look for gifts at Dinstuhl's Fine Candy Company, Inc., contemplate the long history of The Peabody Ducks, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Beale Street.

For traveler tips, photos, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Memphis route planner .
