Memphis Money-Saving Tips

Saving Graceland

The King’s domain is busiest in January and August, the months of Elvis’s birthday and the anniversary of his death. Those eager to join hundreds of Elvis look-alikes should book accommodations up to a year in advance.

Want Music?

If you’re angling to attend the Beale Street Music Festival with its lineup of 60+ national and international acts, you’ll have to act fast. Buy tickets online as soon as the program is announced in March.


It’s illegal to hail a taxi on the street in Memphis. Make sure to keep the Yellow Cab number on hand (901-577-7700 or 901-577-7777).

Main attractions

Not sure where to start? The Riverfront trolley passes popular downtown attractions like the civil rights museum and the Mississippi Riverboats. A day pass for $3.50 allows you to hop on and off as often as you like.

Bird’s Eye View

For the best views of the Peabody Hotel’s famous duck march, arrive 30 minutes before their 11am arrival and 5pm departure from the grand hotel’s lobby fountain. Tip: the mezzanine level offers great bird’s eye views.
