Memphis, Tennessee for School-Age Kids
Know Before You GoPrinter-Friendly Version
- At a Glance
Just like Elvis' swinging hips, Memphis is a city in constant motion. Vintage trolley cars and paddle-wheeler riverboats may have kids thinking they've stepped back in time. Chasing legendary ducks and grooving to the beat of the blues, rock, and soul will keep them singing a happy tune throughout their visit.
