Memphis & The Delta Blues Trail: Great Destinations

Melissa Gage & Justin Gage

From Beale Street’s barbecue, blues, and rock ’n’ roll to the city’s five-star dining and lodging, Memphis is a monster mecca of American music and more. The A-side is world-famous attractions and the flip side has funky shops, historic sites, and gold record legacies.

Step back in time to the Mississippi Delta with endless cotton fields and rural shacks. There is no better place to experience hopping juke joints and the stomping grounds of blues greats like Muddy Waters.

As Citysearch’s travel editor, Melissa Gage wrote about destinations from Sun Valley to San Juan, Puerto Rico. She is currently a freelance writer and screenwriter. Justin Gage is the founder of Autumn Tone Records and the blog creator of Aquarium Drunkard. He is also a music writer, concert promoter, and radio DJ. They live in Los Angeles, CA.
