Memphis Travel Guide

Memphis has an enviable music legacy -- it was home both to the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley and to the Father of the Blues, W.C Handy. Located on the banks of the Mississippi River, it is also a city imbued with a deep sense of history -- once a major cotton-trading center, it is also where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in 1968. The beautiful heritage buildings and the vibrant music scene will enthrall visitors to the city of Memphis.

Having hard time trying to shop for something special? Try A Schwab on Beale Street – this is store with history – opened in 01876 and still going strong, here you will find the most unusual items ranging from voodoo potions (!), stark white petticoats ( who wears these now days?) and what have you – an exercise in serendipity surely as you stumble upon curious items.
