When you come to Memphis, be prepared to go with the flow. It's a city of music and food and history and heritage, all of it moving to the rhythm of the mighty Mississippi River.
It will expose you to lively nights where music radiates from the doors of every restaurant, bar and dive on Beale Street, and legendary landmarks, where the sounds of blues, soul and rock 'n' roll first took root. It will treat you to the tongue-tantalizing tastes of slow cooked barbecue, and propose the difficult question of dry versus wet, rib versus pulled. Most of all, Memphis will surprise you with an eclectic mix of not only barbecue and music, but also history and heritage, culture and festivities.
From the holy grails of music landmarks and the Peabody ducks, to the acclaimed zoo and mystical nightclubs on legendary Beale Street, there is an irresistible soul that has drawn people here for more than a century. Ask anybody who's been here. There's nowhere on earth quite like Memphis.
