Fun experience. Wouldn't take my teens late at night but was good at about 6:30. Parking is expensive.

Unless one is going there to drink then all there is is eating place and a couple souvenir places. I did pick up a few t-shirts, the meal I had down there wasn't that grea, blues city cafe. I mean, I had never been so...More

We enjoyed visiting there. One of the places in Memphis you should go to if you like live music, ribs, cajun food, etc. Families attended the area, as well. One of the cajun places we visited was below average and didn't have all that we...More

I guess you have to go there when you are in Memphis. It's a party street on weekends nights. It's fun, you get a lot to drink and if you don't watch even cockroaches on your head. It wasn't my favorite place to go in...More

Beale Street comes alive at night time, with the majority of bars having a band on all night. The Jerry Lee Lewis bar was a particular favourite and the band we saw there was incredible. Overall there is a huge amount of musical talent in...More

Some wonderful music and remarkably good food for a tourist trap. The best thing about Beale St, after the music, is the way everyone enjoys it. If the infectious good cheer doesn't spark you off, check your pulse... it may have stopped. Unusually, the more...More

It was a great place to listen to music and people watch. It seemed relatively safe and was very clean. There was a police presence to ensure safety.

Beale Street is a wonderful mix of live music, street theatre, and great bars. The street is like a movie set with some building facades like something out of the old wild west. Musicians play for tips and belt out country and rock classics all...More

Love the neon lights at night. Great live music options at the various venues on Beale St. Great people watching. Went Friday night and had to go through security. There is a charge on Saturday nights.

A very busy street with an exciting vibe. A little louder and much rowdier than what I expected. Some places had cover charges.

Hi, Joell. What would you like to know about this attraction? We are passing through town for one afternoon/night, is Graceland tour worth the price? Is Beale street worth it if you're under 21? Safe for Mom and 3 college girls?? Thanks!

I think Graceland is worth it. You might NOT want the splurge for the VIP tickets that include costumes, gold records, cars and airplanes....the house is both an Elvis tribute and a piece of history....what very wealthy home... More

It depends upon which one you are talking about. Graceland was somewhat self guided but we spent about 90 minutes. The museum only takes 30 minutes. Sun Studios was about 1 hour. The Gibson guitar factory was about 45... More
