Beale Street

BB King Blues Club, Beale Street

This little area of Memphis has to be one of the cheapest places to have drinks and bar hop in the United States.  You'll have to park your Memphis car rental on a nearby block and walk over to Beale Street in the evening as it closes to traffic, allowing patrons to take their drinks into the streets!  You can actually get a cheap 32oz beer to go and walk around to the many bars and clubs here, most of which do not charge a cover!

Mud Island River Park

This fun and educational attraction in Memphis is all about the Mississippi River.  Perfect for families, the park features a scale model of the Mississippi which includes a "Gulf of Mexico" large enough for paddle boats.  Take your family to Mud Island River park with a 7 seater rental car from Memphis International Airport.


As the number one tourist attraction in Memphis, Graceland is somewhat of a must-see during any visit.  A bit over the top, but there is plenty to see here and everything is quite nice.  If you happen to be in Memphis during January or August you'll be in for quite a show as fans come from around the world to celebrate the birth and death of "The King of Rock and Roll."

Take a day trip to the casino from Memphis in the little resort town of Tunica.  Once a poor, family community with crop fields and high unemployment, Tunica has quickly become the third largest gaming market in the country.  Come to gamble or simply enjoy the Las Vegas style entertainment, gourmet dining, and golf.


It is possible to visit the two biggest cities in Tennessee in one fell swoop with a cheap car rental from Memphis Airport.  Known as the "Country Music Capital of the World" Nashville is a great place to see live music.  Check out the Grand Ole Opry or go "Honky-tonking" in the Nashville bar scene.
