Memphis may be the birthplace of the blues, but you’ll be anything but bluesy when you get to explore Bluff City. So get your southern itinerary locked and loaded for a sizzling trip.

The best part? No matter where you decide to park it first, it’s all a win-phis.

Your Memphis Getaway is a Ten(nessee)

When in Memphis: When you get to town, there are some only-here quirky stops to take in while you’re rolling in your rental. The Peabody Hotel in downtown Memphis provides a quack-tacular parade twice a day—a troupe of trained pet ducks marches to and from the hotel’s famous fountain to the delight of fowl-loving observers. Nearby, you’ll find another unexpected sight—a giant pyramid by the Mississippi River that’s been taken over by a mega Bass Pro Shop, featuring a stream with real fish and alligators, a bowling alley, and the world’s tallest freestanding elevator. And if you want to get even more face time with wildlife, stop by Shelby Farms Park, where you’ll find a buffalo herd that wanders freely on 50 acres of land.

Where Your Rental Hits the Road: Ready to take in some country roads (and sights)? Jump in your car rental in Memphis and get exploring. The first stop for some woodsy fun is Meeman-Shelby Forest State Park (less than 30 minutes away), where you can hike, canoe, or pontoon boat it up for an outdoorsy adventure. Alamo, TN is about 90 minutes away and is home to the Tennessee Safari Park, the spot to feed ostriches from your car or visit the petting zoo for an even closer encounter. Daredevils might want to take the three-hour trek to Heber Springs, AR, where you can cliff jump from varying heights at the Dam Site Recreation Area.

Go For Broke on Smoke: Barbecue is huge in Memphis. Locals’ favorites will vary, but there are a few spots that just don’t miss. The Rendezvous serves up popular options like ribs, brisket, and even cheese plates. Central BBQ has multiple locations to sample staples like pulled pork sandwiches or BBQ nachos if you’re feeling saucy. And Cozy Corner offers barbecue that’s so good that the owner was inducted into the American Royal Barbecue Hall of Fame in 2020.

Built This City on Rock’n’Roll: Memphis is a mega music town, and there are historical attractions with lots of soul around every corner. The “King” of these stops is Graceland, topping visitors’ must-see lists for years. But make some time to hit up Sun Studio—it’s where many musical careers were launched, from B.B. King to Elvis to Johnny Cash, and it’s filled with legendary tales and memorabilia. And if you’re looking for blues, head to its birthplace on Beale Street for endless live music and party opportunities.
