"BBQ is the specialty"

Score of City:
5.0 / 5

Memphis is certainly a city to visit if you want to experience great food (BBQ is the specialty), nightlife and music, all on one street – Beale Street. This town is also home to Graceland, the residence of the legend, Elvis Presley. If you like basketball and it is in season, you can hop from Beale Street to the FedEx Forum, home of the Memphis Grizzlies. The best place to shop in this city is Wolfchase Galleria Mall. You are also just an hour away from the casinos in Tunica, MS, if this is your thing.

When to Visit

Memphis summers can be very hot — especially during July and August — but many of the famous festivals and other outdoor events take place during the summer months. If you're willing to brave the heat and drink plenty of water, you'll have fun during this season. For those who prefer milder temperatures, consider a visit in the spring or fall.

If you plan to visit in autumn, prepare for all temperatures. Mild days can turn into chilly nights, so pack lots of layers. The winter months aren't necessarily a bad choice for your next visit to Memphis, but prepare for cold winds and frequent rain.

The Beale Street Music Festival takes place in May every year and features lots of live music, food stands, and other attractions. The Mid-South Fair lasts for three days in September or October, while the Memphis International Jazz Festival draws thousands of jazz fans to the city in November. If you're interested in a particular event, plan your visit around those dates.

Luxury Hotel Options in Memphis, Tennessee

4 Star Average Prices: $146.13

If you spend your Memphis vacation in the lap of luxury, you'll gain access to all the comforts of home — plus a few extras. The Courtyard by Marriott Downtown Memphis, for instance, is centrally located in the city center and features rooms decorated with rich textures, polished wood, and expansive views. The bathrooms feature granite countertops and walk-in showers, and you can choose between king and double queen options. Snuggle up in bed with premium satellite television, raid the minibar, or head to the on-site bar for a few drinks.

For a more romantic vacation, book a few nights at the River Inn of Harbor Town. You'll feel like you've stepped back in time the moment you cross the threshold. The decor is a curious blend of European aesthetics and southern charm, with four-poster beds, comfy club chairs, and luxurious linens. Load up on fresh fruit or fluffy pancakes at the free gourmet breakfast every morning and work off extra calories at the on-site gym. You're not far from Elvis's Graceland or Sun Studio, so you won't have to endure a long trip to explore Memphis's tourist attractions.

If you're a fan of the art deco design era, set your sights on The Peabody Memphis Hotel. It's an institution in this city — and for good reason. It's less than a mile from Beale Street and features nearly 450 guest rooms. Whether you're traveling for business or pleasure, you'll enjoy the daily newspaper, free Wi-Fi, crisp linens, luxurious appointments, and numerous on-site dining options. Plus, you can enjoy the daily duck marches at 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. The Peabody Ducks started making the march to the hotel fountain back in the 1930s, and the tradition continues to this day.

Low Cost Hotel Options in Memphis, Tennessee

3 Star Average Prices: $103.31

Memphis offers plenty of ways to relieve you of your cash, whether you're taking tours or scarfing down delicious food. To save money on your trip, you might consider cheap hotel options that divert your budget away from lodging and toward fun activities. The Super 8 Memphis/Downtown/Graceland Area hotel is one such option. It offers clean, spacious rooms as well as a fitness center, outdoor pool, and free daily SuperStart breakfast bonanza, which includes eight different menu items. It's just off Interstate 55, which makes it convenient for travelers who just arrived in town, and you can hop a free shuttle that will deposit you on historic Beale Street.

Alternatively, give the Econo Lodge Downtown Memphis hotel a try. It's one of the cheapest options in the city, but you wouldn't know it based on the amenities. The hotel features a conference room, outdoor pool, on-site bar and restaurant, free continental breakfast, and complimentary Wi-Fi Internet access. Its proximity to Beale Street combined with its simple charm make it the ideal choice for travelers who don't want to part with too much cash.

Meanwhile, the Quality Inn Memphis Hotel offers two ways to save. First, it's very budget-friendly, and second, you can prepare meals in your room with the provided microwave and refrigerator instead of eating out for all your meals. Free Wi-Fi is available in all common areas, and there are on-site laundry facilities if you're planning a long stay. You can also request a free newspaper every day and make free local calls.

Memphis, TN Hotels with Discounts

Some hotels offer ways to save off the advertised nightly rate. For instance, the Comfort Inn Downtown Memphis offers Choice Privileges, a rewards program that allows you to save on room rates while building other perks. You can also take advantage of the hotel's advance purchase opportunity, which lowers your rate by as much as 20 percent if you book well in advance of your trip. Alternatively, take advantage of the Comfort Inn's winter promotion between November and January.

The Best Western Executive Inn in Memphis likewise offers special rates and discounts. If you're a member of AARP, AAA, or CAA, you can get a discount of 10 percent or more. Government employees traveling on official business and military personnel get a similar discounted rate. Additionally, seniors over the age of 55 enjoy a rate that falls at least 10 percent below the advertised nightly cost.

If you're looking for a more luxurious hotel, the Four Points by Sheraton Memphis East fits the bill. You can save up to 15 percent if you're an AAA or CAA member. This highly rated hotel also offers regular promotions, such as Breakfast for a Buck (pay just $1 for breakfast), Cheers With 2 on Us (sip two craft beers every day courtesy of the hotel), and Pay Your Birth Year (pay full rate the first night and your birth year the second and third). AARP members and senior citizens enjoy discounts of between five and 15 percent.

Best Value Options in Memphis, Tennessee

If you're looking for a hotel that rests at the intersection of comfort and affordability, you'll find it in Memphis. The Holiday Inn Memphis Airport Hotel and Conference Center offers just one possibility. It's inexpensive but loaded with amenities, from an on-site restaurant and lounge to the mini refrigerators and premium linens in each room. Take a dip in the pool or use the business center to keep up with work. There's even an on-site dry cleaning service.

You might also like the Hyatt Place Memphis/Wolfchase Galleria Hotel. The distinctly modern aesthetic and abundance of amenities will help you settle in from the moment you set down your bags. It's located about 15 miles from downtown Memphis, which means you're close enough to the action to take advantage of it, but far enough away to enjoy a quieter environment. Some of the premium features include clock radios with MP3 player compatibility, 42-inch LCD TVs, granite-topped bathroom vanities, and optional sleeper sofas.

Finding the Music in Memphis

If you're like many Memphis visitors, you're interested in music above all else. You want a sense of the musical history of the town as well as the chance to watch live performances.

Fortunately, you don't have to look far to find great music in Memphis. Start at Sun Studio, the original home of the Sun Records label and the place where Elvis Presley cut his first records. The King wasn't the only person who famously spent time at Sun Studio — others include Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Cal Perkins.
After you tour the studio, head to Graceland for a firsthand look at Elvis's most famous residence. You can see where he is buried and ogle at the decor he chose, which hasn't been changed since his death. Parts of the mansion remain off-limits, but you'll get to see the Jungle Room, Meditation Garden, and Trophy Building, among other famous areas.

The Buccaneer Lounge on Monroe Avenue is a favorite for people who love rock and roll. Listen to loud music while you sip a beer or cocktail. Levitt Shell is another music venue you won't want to miss. It offers live music five nights a week and features some of the best local blues bands. Other excellent choices for music-centered nightlife include B.B. King's Blues Club, the Blues City Cafe, and Earnestine & Hazel's.

Of course, you won't want to miss the Rock 'n' Soul Museum. You'll find it at 191 Beale, and you'll want to allocate at least a couple of hours to your tour.

Memphis is one of the most dynamic U.S. cities, and you'll find its celebration of music everywhere, from the restaurants and cafes to the hotels and street names. Plan your next vacation and choose a hotel that meets all your needs while still fitting within your budget.

We'd planned to take the bus to the Liberty Bowl, but the bus stops running at 8:20, well before the game was over. Surprising that a city doesn't have more public transportation.
