First time tourist

by FBremner

I am planning a trip for my husband and myself to memphis on october 2009 and would appreciate advice on where to base ourselves.
It has been a life long dream to visit memphis but i am receiving many conflicting reports on where to stay and visit, so much so that i am now delaying booking my trip. I was hoping to stay at the heartbreak hotel but have been told that it is in a very bad area. I also wanted to visit beale street but again am told that it's dangerous.
Can anyone please advise me of the best area to stay and visit.

Beale Street is not NECESSARILY dangerous

by PR-7

Yes, late at night, and particularly on weekends, there are a lot of people who are (1) drunk, (2) in a mood to create trouble, and/or (3) looking to take advantage of the latter two situations. You can most definitely get in trouble if you want to. However, if you stay sober, keep your wits about, go home early, avoid dark and lonely areas nearby, and leave trouble as soon as you sense it; you'll be fine. Beale Street itself is a MAJOR tourist area, and any repeated trouble would kill the goose that lays golden eggs for the whole city. Thus, police and local vendors are more than glad to keep tourists safe -- or at least those that want to keep safe.
If you're feeling really paranoid, walk down Beale Street at mid-day, before the atmosphere that makes its famous has even started. Dull but safe.
If you're feeling really REALLY paranoid, go to Mud Island -- a great place to spend a few hours.
Also go to the Zoo, the Pink Palace, the Botanical Gardens, the Pyramid, the Ornamental Metal Museum, Sun Studios, the ducks at the Peabody, Music Museum, etc, etc, etc.

If the Heartbreak Hotel is the one I'm thinking of (just down the street from Graceland) I didn't think it was a bad neighborhood at all. I stayed very near there in another hotel and had no problems at all. I wasn't out very late but never had any problems at all.

And I have to agree with the other poster about Beale St. I am female and was there alone and stayed until just after it got dark and never felt uncomfortable at all. It's a very busy area and I think as long as you visit before people have a chance to get really drunk, you should be fine, especially it you are with a man.

The area around heartbreak hotel is not great and there isn't anything to do other than Graceland. I'm sure you can stay there without any problems if your heart is set on it, but then you will have to drive at least 10 minutes to get anywhere. Downtown would be a better place, although more expensive, to stay. I have been to Beale Street many times over many years at all different times of the day and night, with and without men and have never felt unsafe. There are police stationed at every entrance to Beale Street and lots of people around. Stay away from the alleys off of the main street, park in a major lot like the Peabody Place lot, avoid picking fights with drunk people and keep your purse close to you like you would in any area with crowds and you will have no problems.

Travel Tips for Memphis

Memphis Flyer's Annual Manual

by anderschwan

If you are going to be in Memphis, you have to check out the Flyer to know what is going on. They also publish an Annual Manual, a must have for living there. Memphis has some great live music but the only way to find out where Todd Snider is playing, or if Alex Chilton will be in town is to read the flyer.

http://www.memphisflyer.com/ Todd Snider performing at the Daily Planet, the Sunset Symphony during Memphis in May, drinking dollar shots when the train went by RP Tracks, the Rendevous, the bizarre performances in Overton Park's Shell Stage.

Memphis Grizzlies

by myrtle

Memphis has recently acquired the Grizzlies NBA team. I haven't been yet to see them play. They have been playing in the Pyramid Arena, but once it opens (and it should be soon), their home will be the FedEx Forum.

Home of the King of the Blues

by Hopkid about B.B. King's

B.B. King's on Beale Street is the original storefront of this small chain (I believe there are only two others in the U.S.). Serving lunch and dinner, B.B. King's also has live music acts throughout the day. The acts range from blues to R&B and feature artists from the Memphis area. The menu has a cajun/southern flavor with gumbo, catfish, and ribs. Full bar service is also available.

The night we were there I nursed a pint of Newcastle Brown Ale (on tap) and greatly enjoyed the vocals of Larry Springfield who went through a selection of Motown, Atlantic, and other 60s and 70s R&B hits. I especially liked his version of Marvin Gaye tunes. Casual

Madison Street Trolley

by grandmaR

There are two trolley lines in Memphis. One is a circle which goes along Riverfront and around to Main. In the middle of Main, you can transfer to the Madison Street Trolley.

We got off at Madison. There was no trolley stop station for transferring to the Madison car, but eventually, one came and we transferred. The main feature of the Madison car was going by the Wonderbread bakery, which you can tell by smell alone. At the end of the line, we paid again (another $1.00) and got another transfer. We picked up a lady in a wheelchair when we went over Presley Blvd on the way back

A Real 50's Restaurant

by Toughluck about Arcade Restaurant

Located in South Memphis, across from the Central Railroad Station and at the southern most turn of the Main Street Trolley, is the Arcade Restaurant. True to it's heritage from the 50's, it's retains the flavor of south Memphis from that period. Good Food, and a setting that has been used in Hollywood movies. Once the busiest part of town as people embarked and disembarked from the railroad., today, it's a sleepy section of town, with a growing art district and daily service by Amtrak. It's not a 50's drive-in, it's a 50's restaurant. There's a difference. Mostly, it was a wealthier clientèle than the drive-ins. Traffic was by bus, street car and train. Therefore, it doesn't cater to cars. You'll find a more extended menu. Traditional breakfast items, full lunch menu and a dinner menu.
