United States Atlas > Travel Photos | Memphis
Memphis is located in the southwestern corner of Tennessee, on the banks
of the Mississippi River. This city of over 650,000 residents is a
celebration of American music, from jazz to blues to rock and roll.
The legendary historic district of Beale Street comes alive each night
with neon-lit restaurants serving up the pulled pork, barbequed ribs, and
live music that have made the city famous the world over. Elvis
fans flock to his famous Graceland mansion on the outskirts of the
city. The Orpheum Theatre, built in 1928, is a top performing arts
center in the region. The Memphis Rock 'n' Soul Museum, and the
Gibson guitar factory also appeal to music lovers.
