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.
“One of Memphis' best examples of where community is part of the building design. This building was once one of the Sears and Roebuck catalog distribution centers and has been restored to support community with a YMCA, Health Center, Brewery, Charter School, and many bars and restaurants. You must see to believe it.”
“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.”
“A complex of museums and historic buildings, its exhibits trace the history of the Civil Rights Movement in the United States from the 17th century to the present. The museum is built around the former Lorraine Motel, where Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated on April 4, 1968. Two other buildings and their adjacent property, also connected with the King assassination, have been acquired as part of the museum complex.”
