The city offers a multitude of other exciting activities and attractions too. Sitting on the banks of the mighty Mississippi River visitors will love Sun studio, STAX, Rock n Soul Museum, the National Civil Rights Museum and Beale Street. Beale Street is one of the most important districts in African-American history. It was part of an area that after the abolition of slavery provided a safe haven. It was also a melting pot of musical styles and many musicians, Elvis among them, learned their trade on Beale Street. A historic street that today, lives the legacy of the Blues, Rock ‘n’ Roll and Soul everyday and night of the year.
