We went to Graceland and due to time constraints never saw any of Memphis. I would recommend opting for a tour of the city rather than Graceland next time.

Plus the speaker's voice was awful. Should have stayed behind for morning cookies and relaxing on the boat. Read Less

We arrived in Memphis 3 days before the cruise and stayed ath the Sheraton downtown. The first morning we visited the Pro Bass Shop (the large Pyramid building). This is a must for anyone who enjoys the out of doors. We then went to Beale St. and had lunch at BB Kings' (great atmosphere). In the aftenoonwe took the Mojo Music bus and Sun Studio tour (this tour is a must for first time visitors to Memphis) We finished the day by having dinner at Gus's Spicy Fried Chicken. On day 2 we took a tour thru Expedia to Tupeol to visit the birth place of Elvis Presley -it was great to get out in the countryside and see rural Mississippi. That evening we had dinner at the Majestic Grill (recommended by locals - a good choice.) On day 3 we made a mistake and took the cruise sponsered "The King's of Memphis Tour" We would have been much better off taking our own VIP tour and then returning to the Sheraton Downtown for the afternoon bus ride to the boat.

Sheraton Downtown was clean and well-planned. Information on Memphis was just right.

We did this on our own. Skipped Graceland. Went to a great Impressionist Museum, saw Beale Street, and the ducks marching at the Peabody Hotel. The Peabody is a beautiful place.

A truly great city with tons to do and marvelous food! Although American Queen included one night at a hotel prior to boarding, we spent 4 nights in Memphis- 2 at The Peabody, Memphis' grand historic hotel, which is fabulous- got to see the famous Peabody Ducks, and enjoy a wonderful gourmet dinner in their French restaurant. Live music on Beale Street was great- we walked there every night and went music-bar hopping until the wee hours, and felt totally safe. We also took a Great BBQ tour with "Tastin' Round Town" and got to eat (and learn about) 6 different (delicious) kinds of Memphis BBQ, including the totally fabulous BBQ at "Cozy Corner"! Got to drink with the goats at Silky O'Sullivan's too! We enjoyed the Fire Dept. Museum and the Cotton Exchange, but the Belz Museum of Judaic and Asian art was THE "hidden gem" of a museum in Memphis- really fabulous! Read Less
