There are access points from many main roads and locations in Memphis. Flat bike tire? Don’t fret! There’s a free bike repair station along the way. Shelby Farms also offers workshops for all ages to learn about the environment and surrounding nature.

Beale Street is the place to be in Memphis. Whether you’re looking to dance, dine or shop, Beal Street has it all. The street truly made its name during the roaring 20s when men and women hit the street to go to nightclubs, theatres, restaurants, shops, and to listen to live music. Make sure to visit the oldest shop on the Street, A. Schwab, dating back to 1876.
