Memphis Vacations

Wear your good white shirt at your own peril. Save that for later in the evening when you head out to the blues club. It might be a drop of smoky grease that finds its way from the corner of your mouth to your collar, or perhaps it’ll be the sweet and tangy sauce that will drip on your belly. There is also a distinct possibility that it could be a combination of finger prints and rogue bones. In any event, there is a significant chance that—by the end of the meal—your shirt if going to look like a Jackson Pollock painting. And that is okay. You see, barbecue ribs are not meant to be enjoyed by the dainty and proper. They are to be devoured in a tactile frenzy of teeth and tender flesh. Without the help of an effective combination of bib and towel, your fancy shirt is bound to be collateral damage.

Much like a plate of ribs, Memphis is a mouthwatering city that is best when savored and experienced. Vacations in Memphis are more than a gastronomical adventure—not that there is anything wrong with that. Bluff City, as it is endearingly called, sits above the Mississippi River, and is known internationally as the birthplace of rock and roll and the home of the blues. So, add a side of Beale Street to your barbeque, and you’ll enjoy the full flavor of a Memphis vacation. And, when you use Travelocity to bundle your airfare and hotel into a Memphis vacation package, you can afford an extra helping of fun along the Mighty Mississippi for dessert.

Memphis Hotels

Whether you will be embarking on a family vacation in Memphis, heading to Bluff City for business, or are planning on a musical odyssey, the right hotel can make all the difference. Here are some of our favorite hotels in Memphis:

  • The Peabody Memphis – One of the most renowned boutique hotels in the nation, this historic property is the embodiment of class, sophistication, and luxury. Modern amenities comingle with antique grace in the well-appointed guest rooms and suites. Attend a rooftop party lit by the hotel’s iconic red neon sign, enjoy a relaxing treatment from Feathers Spa, and line the red carpet for the daily marching of the legendary Peabody ducks.
  • Crowne Plaza Memphis East – A multi-million-dollar renovation has turned the Crown Plaza into an ideal option for business travelers and vacationers, alike. Free Wi-Fi, 15,000 square feet of meeting space, and an on-site business center allow you to get your work done. The indoor swimming pool, Elvis-themed Blue Shore Bar & Grill, and convenient location help make your downtime more enjoyable.
  • Madison Hotel – Just a block from Memphis Park and Cobblestone Landing, the Madison is in a prime location for exploring downtown. The hip, urban Madison offers contemporary cool in the historical heart of the city. Enjoy dinner at the destination-restaurant eighty3, or a watch the sunset while sipping on a cocktail from the Twilight Sky Terrace rooftop lounge. When the day ends, retire to your finely detailed room with chic decor and upscale amenities.
  • The Westin Memphis Beale Street – Follow in the footsteps of blues legends as you leave this modern luxury hotel for a night on the town. If the sultry sounds emanating from the live-music venues on Beale Street don’t draw you in, perhaps a fast-paced NBA game at the FedEx Center across the street is more your speed. After a long day being mesmerized by Memphis, find restoration and relaxation with your down comforter, pillow-top bed, and in-room Starbucks coffee.

Major Attractions

Many Memphis vacation packages include visiting Graceland, the home of Elvis Presley. You'll get to tour his home, see various memorabilia from his life, and pay your respects at his burial place. Book a rental car and travel downtown to view the mighty Mississippi River on Mud Island. There you can listen to music, ride paddle boats, or learn about the path the river takes from Minnesota to Louisiana. History buffs will love visiting the grounds of the Elmwood Cemetery—the resting place of hundreds of Confederate soldiers, including General Nathan Bedford Forrest. Other famous people buried there are author Shelby Foote, the outlaw Kit Dalton, a famous madam Annie Cook, and many others. Another must-see destination in Memphis is the Beale Street Historic District where you will find many clubs including B.B. King's Blues Club.

Festivals and Events

A trip to Memphis wouldn't be complete without a visit to the month-long Memphis in May International Festival or the Memphis Music & Heritage Festival held for two days in September. Both of these annual events feature well-known musicians and bands. If you're a diehard Elvis fan, then you won't want to miss Elvis Week. It's held each year during the 10 days surrounding the anniversary of the King’s death in August and draws fans in jumpsuits and blue suede shoes from near and far.

Browse Travelocity for a huge selection of hotels and airfare to Bluff City. Save enough to buy the house blues band a round of drinks when you bundle your travel and accommodations together with one of Travelocity’s many package deals in Memphis.
