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.
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:
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.
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.
