We Wrote The Book On Memphis History


From the author of A Guide to Historic Downtown Memphis come these fascinating walking tours of the Bluff City.


HISTORIC MEMPHIS WALKING TOUR

This two-hour walking tour of Memphis explores the city's rich history at a fun and leisurely pace. Memphis has always had sometihng of a dual character or split personality: at once a gracious old Southern city of riverboats and cotton money, as well as a rowdy river town of roughnecks, gangsters and gamblers. Your guide will highlight both sides of the city’s history and some of the characters who have made Memphis one of the most unique and colorful places in the world.  Along the way you’ll see:
  • Historic Court Square
  • Fourth Bluff Park, overlooking the Mississippi River
  • Civil War sites (the Battle of Memphis and Forrest's Raid)
  • Cotton Row
  • Panoramic rooftop views of the city
  • Deadman's Alley
  • Main Street, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s last march
The tour includes watching the famous March of the Ducks at the Peabody Hotel, a Memphis tradition since 1933!

BEALE STREET WALKING TOUR

Voted “America’s Most Iconic Street” by USA Today, Beale Street is steeped in colorful history. From the early days of sin and vice to its heyday as the center of the city’s vibrant African-American culture, you'll explore the stories behind the legends and the musicians, gangsters, politicians and crooks who helped make Beale Street the “Home of the Blues.”
  • A. Schwab's
  • Handy Park
  • Old Lansky's
  • Saloon Row
  • "The Castle of Missing Men"
