Music heritage near Memphis vacation home rentals

Music is never far away in Memphis. Whether it’s trad jazz on a passing paddle wheeler, delta blues in a downtown bar, or classic 60s soul in a retro diner, there’s no escaping the city’s impressive back catalog. A stroll down atmospheric Beale Street serves as a reminder of all the greats who have lived, recorded, performed, or got their big break in the city, from Elvis to Justin Timberlake. Memphis vacation rentals offer visitors the chance to become immersed in this soulful city’s world-famous musical heritage for a getaway that hits all the right notes.

Things to do

Tourist attractions near Memphis vacation rentals

No musical pilgrimage to Memphis is complete without a tour of Sun Studio. The original Union Avenue premises where legendary talent-spotter Sam Phillips made seminal recordings of early classics by Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins—the so-called “million dollar quartet”—went through various incarnations after Phillips moved his operation to larger premises. The studio reopened under different management in 1987 and soon became an attraction in its own right, thanks to its illustrious history. Tours take place throughout the day, with historic memorabilia to view and a chance to buy nostalgic souvenirs before you leave.

Beale Street is one of the world’s must-see cultural landmarks, with decades of popular music history crammed into less than 2 miles of downtown Memphis. The street began life primarily as a trading outlet for merchant ships on the Mississippi River. The construction of the Grand Opera House—now the Orpheum—and Church Park heralded a cultural turn, with blues musicians flocking to the area’s clubs and restaurants. The street was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1966. Guided tours of this storied neighborhood are as diverse as its musical heritage—explore by foot, bike, coach, or even Segway.
