Gather there is a lot more activity in the evening, can compare it with 6th street in Austin. Has the quirky souvenirs shops, restaurants, was closed off from traffic which is very nice. Visited A. Schwab, quite funky with what they offer in that store.

First off Beale street isn't nearly as big as I thought. There were some interesting, but mostly tourist type stores to visit and a number of bars and restaurants. It is close to the baseball, basketball stadiums and the Gibson factory. During the day it...More

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
