Beale Street has lots of restaurants and live entertainment. It is a must if you visit Memphis. There is nearby parking available for a price but the history make it well worth the price of parking.

We enjoyed walking up and down this street in Memphis. WE went to a couple of the Blues bars and people watched. This is a place we will return to have more experiences at when we return to Memphis.
