Things to Do in Memphis, TN
From our delicious barbecue to the birthplace of the blues, just mentioning the name “Memphis” evokes a funky, down home sort of feel. However, we also have a quirky, mysterious side that defines us as well. There’s the marching of the legendary Peabody Ducks that cannot be missed (and will definitely bring a smile) and the ghostly kayak ride taken down The Wolf River. Our facility in Memphis offers convenient drive-up self storage units, climate controlled units, and spaces for RV, boat, and vehicle storage for your recreational needs. As a way to open eyes to the many sides of our beautiful city, we’ve put together a list of 10 things we think everyone needs to experience at least once while here in Memphis.
Top 10 Things to Do in Memphis
1. Hang with the Peabody Ducks
For the last 90 years, these pampered ducks have stopped all activity as they are walked across the lobby to the hotel fountain twice a day. It may seem silly, but it is glorious to behold and that’s when you realize these ducks really have it made. Kind of makes you wish you were them, doesn’t it? Show More
2. Sun Studios
Known as the birthplace of rock ‘n’ roll, this bastion of music is worth the trip. Take the tour and you’ll feel like you’re back in time, experiencing the different magical moments that established this amazing (and still working) space as “the most famous recording studio in the world.”
A trip to Memphis just wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Elvis’ glorious house. Take a walk through the halls and grounds to get a glimpse into the magical life lived by this amazing icon and grab some of the fun souvenirs that’ll remind you of this charming experience and the legend that built this empire.
4. National Civil Rights Museum-Lorraine Motel
This deeply moving and emotionally resonant monument is an experience you’ll never forget. The site of the Martin Luther King, Jr., assassination, this simple building has been renovated and turned into an interactive exhibit whose purpose is to keep people in touch with a movement that continues to work toward change even today.
5. Mud Island River Park-Riverwalk
Walk the Mississippi River without getting your clothes wet with this charming scale model. It’s a fun display that gives you a great perspective on the actual river in a way only flying over it would allow. Dip your feet into the flowing water emulating the actual waterway and feel the ridges of the riverbank underneath your toes.
6. Go Ape Shelby Farms
Nestled amidst pine trees, this extreme aerial obstacle course is a great way to get your heart pumping. You’ll zipline through this gorgeous setting across an ever-expanding mechanism of pulleys and ropes that get more and more extreme. It’s a wild ride that is a huge rush and a ton of fun.
7. Sprock ‘N Roll
Go out on the town with your friends in style by taking the party bike to the different pubs and restaurants downtown. This 16-person powered bicycle is a fun way to travel to the different venues, tasting its wares and hanging with your friends. You’ll make a lot of heads turn, but for all the right reasons.
8. Kayaking the Ghost Section of the Upper Wolf River
The dangling cypress trees along this wonderful river create a ghostly feeling that makes the kayak and canoe trips even more mystical. Navigating this is a unique experience, one that makes you feel like you’ve fallen into a whole other world with the unique flora and fauna that live here.
9. Chickasaw State Park for Camping
This 1,400 acre park is named for the Indian tribe who once lived in Western Tennessee and is a lush wilderness filled with outdoor activities. There is fishing, a place to paddle kayaks and canoes, and great campgrounds. With all of the different amenities, this is a wonderful place for a long weekend and more.
