Things to do in Memphis
The new Sheraton Memphis Downtown Hotel sits in the heart of Memphis and is connected by skywalk to the 300,000 square foot Memphis Cook Convention Center. The hotel is ideal for groups and tourists alike, just 12 miles from the Memphis International Airport with close proximity and easy access to public transportation and the many things to do in Memphis.
While in Memphis, music lovers won't want to miss the Memphis Rock 'n' Soul Museum, an exhibition created by the Smithsonian Institution about the birth of rock and soul music. After experiencing the digital audio tour through the exhibits, grab a Memphis Hop bus outside the museum to ten other local attractions, including AutoZonePark, the Metal Museum, and Elvis Presley's Graceland. This mansion-turned-museum takes visitors on a trip back in time where they can tour the King of Rock 'n' Roll's family home and view his private plane and luxury car collection.
If you're a history buff, hop on a trolley from the convention center to the National Civil Rights Museum, the site of Martin Luther King's assassination on April 4, 1968. The award-winning museum traces the history of human rights movements from the 17th century through today. Families will enjoy the highly interactive Children's Museum of Memphis where kids of all ages can sit in a Boeing 727 cockpit. Be sure not to miss the Memphis Zoo, a 76-acre exhibit featuring pandas, pelicans, hippos and more!
Music, history, entertainment and fun come together on Beale Street, one of Memphis' most well known attractions. With more than 25 clubs and shops to choose from, Beale Street is a must-see for any convention attendee or tourist. Experience the night life and hear the sounds of artists who got their start on Beale Street as you pass the many restaurants and storefronts.
