Microphone Sun Studios Memphis Tennessee
One of my favorite things to do in Memphis, Tennessee – Sun Studio guided tour of the birthplace of rock and roll.

A few years, or rather decades, ago – before cell phones and the internet – I got iced in at the Memphis, Tennessee airport. Read my story on how I ended up sharing two hotel rooms with six strangers I befriended on the airplane and in baggage claim. Although we had a blast, I did not get to experience the top things to do in Memphis. So was excited when Memphis Travel and several museums offered me tickets recently. While much of my perfect three-day itinerary was hosted, opinions are always my own. And discover for yourself why Time Magazine named Memphis to its World’s Greatest Places in 2021 list!

Here are the best places to visit and top things to do on Day 1 of your perfect itinerary in Memphis, Tenn.

National Civil Rights Museum at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, TN

The National Civil Rights Museum at the Lorraine Hotel in Memphis, TN is known as the greatest civil rights story ever told. Pictured: Rosa Parks, the mother of the civil rights movement, refused to give up her bus seat to a white man in 1955. Her arrest sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott in which 17,000 Black Americans participated.

Make the National Civil Rights Museum at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, TN your first stop on your perfect three-day itinerary. And set aside at least a half day. While some travel guides recommend at least 90 minutes, I toured the National Civil Rights Museum for three hours. And I still feel like I need to return and learn more.

See my related post: Guide to the National Civil Rights Museum

Many of your assumptions about the National Civil Rights Museum will dissipate as you become enlightened about the entire civil rights movement over the past 400 years – slavery, separate but equal, boycotts, assassinations, Black power, and more. The National Civil Rights Museum at the Lorraine Motel lives up to its claim as the greatest civil rights story ever told.

Best hotel in Memphis: The historic Central Station Hotel

Central Station Hotel Memphis Travels
Loved my stay at the historic Central Station Hotel in Memphis, Tenn. Special thank you for Memphis Travel for their assistance in creating a memorable getaway. While they provided tickets to several museums and coordinated accommodations at Central Station Hotel, opinions are always my own.

Grateful Memphis Travel coordinated accommodations for me at the historic Central Station Hotel on the equally historic South Main Street. Again, opinions are always my own, and Central Station Hotel is the best place to stay in Memphis.

I absolutely loved Central Station Hotel for its friendly and helpful staff, comfy suite and its location (walkable distances to many of the top attractions in Memphis). And not only is Central Station Hotel one of the best hotels to stay at in Memphis, it’s also one of the best places to visit. You’ll love its history, unique lobby bar (Eight & Sand) with a DJ that spins vinyl records, and the hotel’s own sounding music room.

Central Station Hotel Memphis Tenn
Audiophiles and history buffs alike will love Central Station Hotel – stay for the night or stay for a couple of hours listening to records spin on the turntable.

I didn’t get an opportunity to visit the Memphis Railroad & Trolley Museum as it’s currently only open Friday through Sunday. However, this museum sounds like a great Memphis attraction for families with children.

A few of the Memphis Railroad & Trolley Museum exhibits include a train simulator you can drive, a model train layout and even a Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends room.

Graceland: The Home of Elvis Presley in Memphis, TN

Graceland Mansion Elvis Memphis
Visit Graceland – The Home of Elvis Presley. It’s the #1 top attraction in Memphis.

I was a huge fan of Elvis Presley growing up – loved his music and even his movies. A very special thank you to Graceland for providing me tickets to tour Graceland – The Home of Elvis Presley. As always, opinions are my own.

And I can honestly say that Graceland lives up to its reputation as the number one attraction in Memphis, Tenn. Definitely a 70s vibes as you walk through the mansion.

You’ll enjoy an audio tour (at your own pace) of the 14-acre Graceland estate as well as the self-guided tours of all the special Elvis Presley exhibits. I recommend allowing at least a half-day to visit the Graceland mansion as well as the 200,000-square-foot entertainment complex. See my related post: Guide to Graceland: Home of Elvis Presley

Billiards room at Graceland in Memphis Tennessee

Elvis Presley’s Memphis takes you on a self-guided tour of his life. The exhibits showcase his career, gold records, movies, wardrobe, cars, planes, motorcycles and more. I especially loved the exhibit that features his influence on other great musical artists. A visit to Graceland is the best pilgrimage and thing to do in Memphis for all music lovers.

Gladys' Diner at Graceland Home of Elvis Presley Memphis Tennessee

So my first stop after walking through the Elvis Presley ticket gates was lunch at Gladys’ Diner – grilled peanut butter and banana sandwich (cooked-to-order in butter or bacon grease). I was skeptical, but pleasantly surprised how much I loved Elvis’ favorite sandwich! Delicious!

Floor-to-ceiling of records and albums line this hall at the Stax Museum of American Soul Music in Memphis, Tenn.

I must admit that before my visit to Memphis, I had never heard of the Stax Museum of American Soul Music. But I walked away with so much knowledge of some of our most beloved soulful legends.

You’ll start your tour in a former country church, which is the birthplace of soul music. From there, you’ll travel through time with all the mesmerizing exhibits, elaborate performance wardrobes, a recording studio from back in the day, a hall featuring floor-to-ceiling cases of all records and albums released by Stax, and much more.

Soul Train Dance Floor Stax Museum Memphis Tennessee
What a cool museum that encourages you to get your groove on! Stax Museum’s Express Yourself dance floor.

Anyone else dance in their living room while watching Soul Train growing up? Well, you can relive those moments on their Express Yourself dance floor. So fun!

Fun fact: Otis Redding showed up at Stax Museum of American Soul Music as a chauffeur for another recording artist. When that session didn’t go so well, they allowed Redding to sing. He went on to become the label’s biggest star.

While Memphis Travel and Stax Museum provided me a complimentary ticket, opinions are my own. And I can say wholeheartedly that one of the best music history museums in Memphis or even the world is Stax Museum of American Soul Music.

See my related post: Guide to the Stax Museum of American Soul Music

Where is the Stax Museum of American Soul Music located?

The Stax Museum of American Soul Music is located at 926 E. McLemore Ave., Memphis, TN 38106.

Day 3: Top Things to do in Memphis, TN

Here are the best places to visit on Day 3 of your perfect itinerary in Memphis, Tenn.

Sun Studio: The birthplace of Rock ‘N’ Roll in Memphis, TN

Sun City Studio in Memphis
Known as the birthplace of rock ‘n’ roll, Sun Studio is one of the best things to do in Memphis, TN

One of my favorite things to do in Memphis was taking the Sun Studio tour – the birthplace of rock ‘n’ roll. And that’s not just a gimmicky marketing line. This is where it all began. And Sun Studio is still making its marks in music history. I was surprised to learn that Sun Studio is not just a museum. It still serves as a recording studio for artists at night. How cool is that?

Sun Studios recording studio Memphis Tenn
Music trivia: Dewey Phillips, a popular DJ with Memphis radio station WHBQ, was the first to broadcast Elvis Presley’s debut record, “That’s All Right.”

While small, the intimate Sun Studio museum packs in a lot of great music history. A tour guide provides behind-the-scenes stories and transports you back to the 1950s where music legends like Johnny Cash, B.B. King, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Ray Orbison, and more made history. In fact, you can stand in the very same spot where Elvis Presley recorded.

Please note that tickets are only sold in person the day of the tour, which are once an hour at the bottom of the hour (e.g., 10:30 a.m.). And because of its size, tours are limited to 25 guests. So I highly recommend arriving at Sun Studio early to get your tickets. And while my ticket was complimentary courtesy of Memphis Travel and Sun Studio, my opinion is always my own. And my opinion is that you must visit Sun Studio.

See my related post: Guide to Sun Studio

Where is Sun Studio in Memphis, Tennessee located?

Sun Studio is located at 706 Union Avenue at the corner of Union and Marshall in Memphis, Tenn.

Peabody Hotel Duck March

Where is Peabody Hotel Duck March in Memphis, Tennessee located?

The Peabody Hotel Duck March takes place in the hotel lobby. The Peabody Memphis is located at 149 Union Avenue, Memphis, Tenn.

Memphis Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum

Rock n Soul Museum Sign Memphis Tennessee

A Smithsonian Institution Affiliations Program developed by the National Museum of American History, the Memphis Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum is one of the best music history museums. I loved the self-paced audio tour to learn all about the origins and evolution of American rock and roll and soul music.

You can access more than 300 minutes of music history as well as a library of more than 100 songs. You’ll begin your rock and soul journey watching a documentary film before making your way around the seven galleries of rock and soul exhibits and stories.

Again, while the Memphis Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum and Memphis Travel provided me tickets, opinions are always my own. See my related post: Guide to Memphis Rock ’n’ Soul Museum

Where is the Memphis Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum located?

You’ll find the Memphis Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum on the historic Beale Street tucked away next to the FedExForum where the Memphis Grizzlies play. The address for Memphis Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum is 191 Beale Street, Memphis, Tenn.

  12. I completed a Mississippi River cruise in Memphis. I didn’t have time to explore the city because I flew straight out to Mexico. With so much to see and do in Memphis, this was my loss.

But it looks like there are a lot of cool things to see there so I guess I’ll have to give it another shot! I’d enjoy going to Graceland as I have the same birthday as Elvis. 😁

    1. I’ve heard and read that Memphis was unsafe. But I can honestly say that I walked pretty much everywhere and felt safe. I did not venture out after dark, however, since I was traveling solo. That’s so cool that you share the same birthday with Elvis. I hope you do give Memphis another chance as there are lots of great things to do and experience.

  21. I have been to all the other large cities in Tennessee but never to Memphis. It looks like such a great place! Lots of interesting things to see and it’s so colorful! Your photos are great!

  23. Memphis looks like a really fun place to visit. I’d especially love to see Graceland and that Stax museum with the express yourself dance floor.

  24. We did a day trip to Memphis during our trip to Nashville a few years back. It was awesome. I may not be a huge Elvis fan, but touring Graceland was incredible! Had I had the youger kids with me, we would have had to see the duck march!

  25. What a great post! I’m hoping to visit Memphis this summer and then take a road trip into Arkansas. I would love to stay at the Central Station Hotel! And visiting Graceland sounds so fun!
