Not too big and not too much to do during the day if your not into drinking. But we enjoy about an hour and a half or so. Did some shopping and walk and took pictures. Love the music on the background, feels alive! It was me, husband and two kids.

Be aware, do NOT stray too far from Beale Street. Especially at night. It's extremely dangerous. Beale Street itself is very safe. City wants tourists to enjoy. Lots of shops and bars including Coyote's. If you go to Memphis, you will want to go to Beale Street unless you're with children.

We headed down the Saturday night we stayed in memphs, was a bit worried as we had our children with us (9 & 4yrs) but they enjoyed it. We had a great dinner, enjoyed the interesting and different stores, the ambience and the street entertainers were awesome..literally grabbed our oldest and had him involved but was great fun

We stopped at dyers to get a burger. We stopped there because we watch food network and it was a place they advertised. So we tried it. Food was great. Service was great. We walked the strip and was so lit up and cool to see. We did a horse and carriage ride through memphis area. Was nice. Pretty much... More

Great music, great food, interesting people, and just plain fun. We visited both during the day and at night. I felt safe there - as long as you use common sense, Beale Street is wonderful experience.

If you love music you will love Beale Street we walked though calling in bars and listening to the different music, it was so nice to be able to listen to what you wanted to and the park was great.

My sister and I arrived during thanks giving 2009 - Memphis was generally quiet but some shops were open and Beale street was one of the highlights.! We shopped and explored and managed to get to a gig - fabulous..!

You cannot ignore Beale street but be selective .Some bars have great Bands and some have ordinary noisy bands. There are lots of talented musicians .Do not pay where a cover charge is required up to 5 dollars. All bands have a tip box which you can show your appreciation into.. Very lively and enjoyable atmosphere and well policed

This was our first time visiting Memphis and Beale Street and we were not disappointed. We love the blues and music seemed to be everywhere. It is not really for small children due to the drinking in the street but for adults who like music, it is fun. Police presence is strong which gives a feeling of security. Pan handlers... More
