Must See Attractions
Visit the zoo, a museum, or a local theater
For family fun, spend the day at Memphis Zoo, where you can see thousands of animals, including crocodiles and tropical birds. If you love music, learn about music history at Memphis Rock N Roll Museum, or tour the guitar factory at Gibson Beale Street Showcase. Visit the Children’s Museum of Memphis or National Civil Rights Museum, the site of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. assassination in 1968. Orpheum Theater features concerts, Broadway shows and movies, or if sports is more your game, catch the Memphis Grizzlies play basketball at FedExForum. The car races and shows at Memphis International Raceway are less than a half-hour away, or spend the day in the scenic outdoors with a hike at 4,500-acre Shelby Farms Park Conservatory, just 10 minutes away.
