  • Best place to spend the evening in town. Outdoor auditorium and walking path lets you to enjoy. Sculpture replicating the Mississippi River is admirable. Nice view of city and Memphis word sign attractive. Need to pay for parking otherwise no charge. Few restaurants are there but no idea about the food.
  • Mud Island Park is a fun place. There’s a walk way showing you the path and different depths of the Mississippi River. Although I couldn’t set this as a “ park” it really is. We saw kids playing in the water, tire swings, and benches. There’s even a small snack bar- although it wasn’t open when we were there in mid August. The large, colorful, fun “ Memphis” sign is at the end of the river walk way. An easy walk. I recommend this stop while in Memphis
