If you are planning a visit to Memphis anytime soon, there are certain destinations and activities you’ll want to make time for during your trip. Whether you’re traveling alone or with a group, there’s something for everyone to enjoy in Memphis.

Must-see Memphis attractions

Overton Park

Enjoy the great outdoors at Overton Park, which includes more than 8 miles of trails, beautiful gardens and an abundance of picnic areas. Walk at a slower pace for a while as you take in everything this beautiful city has to offer.

Sky Zone Trampoline Park

If you have kids, you’ll want to make sure you set aside time for all the high-flying fun to be had at the Sky Zone Trampoline Park. Thanks to its comfortable, air-conditioned setting, this indoor attraction is a great place for the entire family to have some fun.

Autobahn Indoor Speedway & Events

If you’re visiting with older kids and adults, your time in Memphis simply must include a visit to the Autobahn Indoor Speedway for some fast-paced racing fun and high-energy games. Race cars, test your skills and compete in the arcade with family and friends.

Crystal Shrine Grotto

Nature lovers will love walking around the trails and admiring both the beautiful landscapes and natural features of the Grotto as well as the breath-taking architecture featured here as well. Many visitors enjoy photo ops and leisurely strolls along the trails and garden pathways.


No fan of Elvis “The King” Presley’s trip to Memphis would be complete without a pilgrimage to Graceland. Buy tickets early, as they tend to sell out—especially during peak travel seasons.

National Civil Rights Museum – Lorraine Motel

Celebrate history, remember our country’s past and acknowledge how far we have come with a visit to the Lorraine Motel. After Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated here, the site was turned into the National Civil Right Museum. Remember what must never be forgotten and pay tribute to a man who changed the world for good.

The Peabody Ducks

A quirky attraction that’s fun for all ages, the Peabody Ducks are a great way to wrap up any day spent touring the attractions and destinations of Memphis. Kids love the Peabody Ducks and even adults will find themselves smiling at their adorable antics.

These and many other attractions and activities are waiting to be enjoyed in Memphis, so make your plans today!
