Had to come here. Just didn’t feel that safe in Memphis. Had a quick wander but didn’t linger as didnt feel safe at all. Wish we had skipped Memphis.

Beale Street is a must for me while driving through Memphis. There are so many shops and performers. At night, it's all lit up in neon. Beautiful, lively place.

Nice to go around and the museums and stadium are nearby. There is a public parking that charges reasonably. There is a Starbucks nearby and there are several bars and it is lively at night.

OK it's January and a bit cold walking round but we didn't feel the vibe, a bit too much of the cover-charge and premium on your check to pay for the band. On a personal note the volume in some bars was defending (to me)....More

I toured and enjoyed Beale Stree in Memphis about 15 years ago and had a wonderful time. Very colorful and entertaining. I just returned, and was very saddened to see the neglect, dirt and disintegration of an important historic part of Tennessee and the US....More

Visiting Memphis without visiting Beale street is not complete yet. The best time to visit the Beale is end of the day because as soon as the police block the street only for pedestrian, the street is coming to live. Live music is almost in...More

As they close off Beal Street for the evening enjoyment of visitors, take in fun street performers, take a Cinderella Carriage ride horse drawn. View statues honouring the king of blues oh yes and Elvis himself. It’s a fun evening and next door to the...More

It's about 25 miles from Beale Street to the Lewis ranch in Mississippi. I would download Uber or Lyft when you get to the States, cheaper than cabs.

Sad to say but there's not as much blues music on Beale's but the Rum Boogie or club attached to it had great blues recently. It's hit and miss on finding blues....but if wrist band is available do so you can pop around.

Really don't think you'll find a tribute to Elvis. Memphis is so much more than the home of Elvis Presley. It's about getting absorbed in the culture, the home of R&B, Beal Street and the clubs there, some of which are owned... More
