Memphis Tourism

It is the largest city in the state of Tennessee and lies on the southeastern portion of the state. It is also known as the ‘City of Musical Blues’ mainly because of the many singers who have risen to fame here. The most popular among them is the legendary man of rock ‘n’ roll music, Elvis Presley.

The Downtown portion has undergone extensive redevelopment. On the other hand the center of the city has maintained the authenticity of its charming past. The city has a rich history of culture, sports and social development and reforms. The city has been a center of the Civil Rights Movement and also of the struggle of the Black Americans, and much of Memphis tours and travels reflect this.

This is one city that has risen to become one of the most popular from being an abandoned place for many years. As you go there now, you will just feel the bliss everywhere starting from the cheerful people, busy streets, modern shops, yummy food, so much shopping and what not!
