Our tour guide was energetic, funny, and really gave us an appreciation of Memphis music and the roots of rock ‘n’ roll. Highly recommended!
“A must see attraction in downtown Memphis that tells the history of the civil rights movement in the US.”
“So much cool music originated from STAX. Learn about a true collaboration of American music that was created at STAX, oh, and Isaac Hayes'c gold lined Caddie. Totally worth the price of admission in my book. ”

“This is a world-class, award-winning zoo with natural habitats and a wide variety of species. The zoo entrance is about a mile’s stroll through Overton Park from the bungalow. Early mornings, when walking along the path behind the zoo, you may hear the chillingly haunting sound of the wolves howling in concert. ”
