Memphis is easily accessible by car, rail and air. As the “Home of the Blues” and “Barbeque Capital of the World,” Memphis provides the visitor excellent dining opportunities and fun “after the lab” experiences. Beale Street and Graceland (home of Elvis Presley) are a short drive away, and the Memphis Zoo, located in Midtown Memphis, is one of the top zoos in the country. We are also home to the Memphis Grizzlies of the NBA and our minor league baseball team, the Memphis Redbirds, is located in one of the most beautiful downtown stadiums in the country. Last but absolutely not least, Memphis is famous for her world-famous bbq. A trip to Memphis without sampling some tasty bbq is truly ill-advised!
