Memphis

215mi / 346km

Switching from country music to the home of the blues, today brings you to Memphis. See the city and the great Mississippi River from Big River Crossing, the country’s longest public pedestrian bridge across the Mississippi. Each evening from sundown to 10pm there’s an hourly ‘Mighty Lights’ show where the bridge comes alive with a dynamic colour show featuring over 100,000 lights. No one should ever visit Memphis without going to Graceland where the Lisa Marie airplane can also be viewed, and Sun Studios, where Elvis recorded some of his earliest music.  Another ‘must do’ is Beale Street and if you find yourself in Memphis on a Wednesday evening, it’s ‘Bike night on Beale’ so you’ll see hundreds of proud Harley (as well as many other makes of bike) owners showing their bikes for you to enjoy.
