How safe is Memphis for women?

I think it can be okay, if you keep your wits about you and stay in the safe / more populated areas. Tourist heavy areas like Beale and Main Street will be fine at night. Midtown is also good. But make sure to get a car since we essentially don’t have public transportation and make sure you don’t leave your valuables in your car. And do not honk at other drivers. I haven’t had any issues living in Memphis yet, but I am also very cognitive of where I am and where I am going.

Is Memphis worth visiting?

Overall rating

3.9 /5

based on 3 experiences

Solo travel experience

Memphis was by far my favorite place I went to on my road trip, but I am also a major Elvis fan. I would definitely say that it’s worth it to spend tickets on Sun Studio. I got to hold a microphone that Elvis and Johnny Cash and others touched! As for Graceland, if you want to spend the money, go for it. However, if you don’t want to spend money, you can walk in for free from 7:30-8:30 in the morning. I parked in the little area by the wall of all the signatures and there was no problem with ticketing. For free, you can see Elvis’ tombstone and those of his family as well. You can also get a pretty good view of the house! Besides that, I went to the Arcade restaurant that Elvis would frequent and later got coffee at the same place. I had great experiences with the food and the coffee. If you’re an Elvis fan, though, look out for the past booth on the left. It’s the Elvis booth. I sadly missed that opportunity. I also walked along Beale Street both in the day and night and it was amazing. B.B. King’s restaurant had amazing music and was worth the price to get in!

Graceland is a must-see spot in Memphis. The National Civil Rights Museum is also worth noting. Public transportation is not the best. On the other hand, the zoo is good, and Beale St is a place you absolutely must visit.
