Home of Elvis Presley
I don't know if it's a museum, shops, or what. It's really all of those. Locals don't think much of it--but if you're an Elvis fan, it's obviously a must.
“Multi-use facility that is housed in the old Sears Distribution Center. Brewery, eats, coffees, bars. You will want to stay a while! ”
“We can’t often see the stars in Memphis through the clouds and bright city lights. For less than $5, Sharpe Planetarium is a fun alternative.”
“Char is the star of the newly revamped Highland Strip and the brunch is not to be missed. The brunch menu includes staples like crab Benedict, custard-fried French toast, and chicken & waffles. The full non-brunch menu is also available on Saturdays and Sundays, which means you can get a bowl of gumbo and crab claws with your mimosa. If you like jazz, be sure to reserve a table in the bar and enjoy live music from Le Tumulte Noir.”
“The Lorraine Motel was the site of Martin Luther King Junior’s assassination, and though some might have had it demolished or allowed its tainted history to dictate its future, the city of Memphis has turned the motel into an incredible homage to the civil rights movement that King labored so diligently to progress. The National Civil Rights Museum underwent a 27.5 million dollar renovation in 2012 and in order to properly exhibit the entire history of civil rights, the museum encompasses not just the Lorraine Motel, but several surrounding buildings as well.”
