See 'America's Most Iconic Street' on this fantastic walking tour and sightsee some of the most popular locations and attractions in the great city of Memphis, also called the Bluff City. This leisurely stroll will take you along the street known as the 'Home of the Blues' to see popular sites like A. Schwab's, Handy Park, Old Lansky's, Saloon Row, and 'The Castle of Missing Men.'

Learn how WC Handy brought the blues from the cotton fields to a wide, urban audience, how crusading journalist Ida B. Wells fought some of the earliest battles of the Civil Rights Movement, and how Beale Street’s black-owned banks and shops and saloons became the center of a vibrant African-American community that thrived despite the restrictions of segregation. With this wonderful walking tour, you can take your time learning about the legends and stories behind some of the legends and musicians that helped to create the great saga that exists today.
