RECREATION


AutoZone Park
Home to the Class AAA Memphis Redbirds, this handsome red-brick stadium with
double-decked dark-green seating opened to much acclaim in spring 2000. Its highlights
include 48 luxury suites, a state-of-the-art lighting system, and a 13-story-tall
scoreboard containing the largest video-board in minor-league baseball. Dominating the
downtown park's entry plaza is the 37-foot-tall "Nostalgia Man." The Redbirds play April
through August. Union at Third St., 721-6050

Beale Street
Our own world-famous thoroughfare that gave birth to the blues features some big-
name nightspots, from B.B. King's Blues Club to Elvis Presley's Memphis. Besides
hearing live music most any night of the week, you can also visit various specialty shops
or tourist sites, including the home of W.C. Handy, who launched his career during
Beale's early heyday. And don't miss A. Schwab's, a century-old family-operated dry-
goods store, where you can find anything from tarot cards to underwear.

Center for Southern Folklore & Cafe
This one-of-a-kind institution hosts folk-art exhibitions, live blues and jazz performances,
and demonstrations on quilting and other folk -art forms. Of special interest is the
center's First Church of Elvis Impersonators, a coin-operated shrine to the King. Visitors

browse through the gift shop that offers regional art, books, and novelty items. 119
South Main, Pembroke Square. 525-3655

Children's Museum of Memphis
Designed as a miniature city, the Children's Museum includes the CityFriends' exhibit,
where kids dress up as firefighters and other public "friends." The hands-on learning
center also teaches children how to shop for groceries, build a house, create art in the
Recycle Factory, and explore clocks and time zones in Time Square. Located on the
grounds of the old National Guard Armory, the museum also sponsors special events
and traveling displays. A 16,000-square-foot expansion is underway, with plans for its
completion in 2002. 2525 Central, 320-3170

Chucalissa Archaeological Museum
Located on tranquil rolling hills, this reconstructed village reflects the lives of Native
Americans who dwelt on the river bluffs until about 500 years ago. Meaning "abandoned
house," Chucalissa was inhabited by various Indian tribes, mysteriously deserted in the
1500s, and rediscovered by government workers in 1939. Over the years, the site has
been restored with thatched-roof huts, life-size vignettes, replicated furnishings, and
exhibits of crafts and artifacts discovered in digs. 1987 Indian Village, 785-3160
Davies Manor Plantation House
Shelby County's oldest log house was built by an Indian chief in 1807, and in 1851 the
structure was purchased by the Davies family and expanded into a country farmhouse.
The centerpiece of a 2,000-acre plantation, where deer and other wildlife still roam,
Davies Manor Plantation House has been designated a Century Farm, in operation for
more than 100 years, and is on the National Register of Historic Places. Tours of the
log-and-chink dwelling with its early family furnishings are given April through December
20th. 9336 Davies Plantation, 386-0715

The Fire Museum of Memphis
Located in what was once downtown's fire station No. 1, this attraction showcases a
restored 1910 firehouse with rare equipment dating back 170 years; one of these is a
replica of "Little Vigor," Memphis' first fire engine. Greeting visitors to the exhibit is "Ol'
Billy," an animatronic horse that narrates a video describing the role horses once played
in fire-fighting. The museum also contains a comprehensive collection of artifacts,
including stories and photos of Memphis' most devasta ting fires, while interactive games
teach fire safety and simulate real fires through such devices as hot air, thick smoke,
and wrap-around video screens. 118 Adams, 320-5650

Graceland Mansion
The trophy room at Graceland boasts not only Elvis Presley's vast assortment of gold
records and awards but also contains a timeline that traces the King of Rock -and-Roll's
early years in photos, documents, clothing, and guitars. Graceland Mansion, the
antebellum-style house that Elvis bought in 1957 that today attracts some 600,000
visitors annually, also features the automobile museum; the luxurious Lisa Marie jet;
and "Sincerely Elvis," a mini-museum of candid photos, home-movie clips, and other
personal mementos. Special events are held at Graceland in January to commemorate
Elvis' birthday, while in August fans flock to his grave for a candlelight vigil. 3734 Elvis
Presley, 332-3322

Libertyland
The high-flying Sea Dragon is one of various thrill rides you'll find at the bicentennial-
themed amusement park that opened in 1976. Others include the Tidal Wave, which
flips and turns the intrepid rider 20 feet above the ground, and the Revolution, which
boasts a 360-degree loop. Among the venerable tried-and-true favorites are the Zippin
Pippin, America's oldest operating wooden roller coaster, and the Grand Carousel, built
in 1909 by the famous Dentzel Carousel Company. Throughout the park, which also
features games and live stage shows, replicas of Independence Hall and other buildings
recall great moments in American history. 940 Early Maxwell, 274-1776

Lichterman Nature Center

Events Lawn with nati ve plants, birds, and butterflies; a Backyard Wildlife Center with
living exhibitions and interactive learning activities; improved nature trails throughout the
65-acre facility; a native plant greenhouse; and an amphitheater. Donated to the city by
the Lichter-man/Loewenberg families, the center offers plant sales, educational
programs, and guided nature walks. 5992 Quince, 767-7322

Meeman-Shelby State Park
More commonly known as Shelby Forest, this state park sits atop the Chickasaw Bluffs.
Besides hiking trails, camping facilities, and an Olympic-sized swimming pool, Shelby
Forest offers fishing and boating at its 125-acre Poplar Tree Lake. The park's nature
center contains natural history exhibits and park staffers provide guided tours, arts and
crafts displays, and other organized activities. Located 13 miles north of Memphis near
Millington, off U.S. Highway 51, 876-5215

Memphis Botanic Garden
The sensory garden, with its color, texture, fragrance, and sound, is one of several
attractions at the Memphis Botanic Garden. At the heart of the park is the striking Red
Drum Bridge arching over a koi-filled lake, and winding throughout are wildflower-
studded walking trails. Seasonal sights include spring's Japanese cherry trees in
breathtaking bloom, and beds of summer roses, daylilies, and other perennials,
including herbs, cacti, and butterfly-attracting plants. Special events, educational
programs, and art exhibitions are held at the facility throughout the year. 750 Cherry,

Memphis Rock 'N' Soul Museum
Located in the Gibson Guitar Factory, this addition to Memphis' downtown attractions is
a collaboration between the Wonders Series and the Smithsonian Institution.
Recognizing that the roots of modern rock music start right here in Memphis,
Smithsonian planners developed the 10,000 square-foot museum to reflect the journey
modern music has taken, from blues and gospel, to rock-and-roll and soul. With
technology that lets visitors customize their tour by listening to songs from certain eras,
they will see such items as Stax studio's drum set. Also, visitors can tour the Gibson
assembly line, where some 80 guitars are produced daily. 145 Lt. George W. Lee Ave.,
543-0800/544-7998

Memphis Zoo
Elok, a male orangutan born here in 2000, is one of 3,000 animals from 500 species
that live at the Memphis Zoo. Over the past decade the zoo has improved animal
habitats and added state-of-the-art exhibits, including Cat Country, Primate Canyon,
Animals of the Night, Dragon's Lair, and Once Upon a Farm. In spring 2002, the Zoo will
open CHINA, an exhibit showcasing Chinese architecture, history, horticulture, and
animal species, with the possibility of including two giant pandas. 2000 Prentiss Place

The Mississippi River
On the banks of Ol' Man River, several major events are held each yea r, including the
Memphis in May Sunset Symphony and a fireworks extravaganza on the Fourth of July.
Regular riverboat cruises are offered by the Memphis Queen Line, and numerous parks
along the bluffs make ideal spots for picnics, romantic strolls, or mome nts of quiet
reflection. Winding above the Father of Waters is the Bluffwalk, a 2,000-foot pedestrian
path with panoramic views.

Mud Island River Park
This combination public park, museum, and entertainment center lies between the
Mississippi River and the Wolf River Harbor. Its chief attractions are the River Walk, a

National Civil Rights Museum
Brown vs. the Topeka Board of Education -- a landmark desegregation case that paved
the way for school integration -- was a turning point in American history. At the National
Civil Rights Museum, the first of its kind in the country, you can learn more about such
hard-won milestones achieved by African Americans as they fought for equal status wit h
whites. Located on the site of the Lorraine Motel, where a sniper's bullet felled Dr.
Martin Luther King Jr., the museum includes interpretive displays and realistic vignettes
of the March on Washington, the Montgomery Bus Boycott, and the desegregation of
Little Rock schools, to name just a few events. Through traveling exhibits and special
programs, the museum also spotlights the global struggle for human rights. 450
Mulberry, 521-9699

The Peabody
It opened at its present location in 1925, fell on hard times in the 1970s, and was
restored to its former glory, with many modern amenities added, by the Belz family in
the early 1980s. Today Memphians and tourists alike enjoy people-watching in The
Peabody lobby, dining in its restaurants, partying in the ba llrooms, and dancing on the
Plantation Roof. Duck-watching is another hallmark of "the South's grand hotel,"
attracting curious visitors from miles around. Each morning the ducks march off the
elevator, strut down the red carpet, and splash into the lobby fountain, then return to
their rooftop "Royal Duck Palace" each afternoon. 149 Union, 529 -4000

and Gallery

An exquisitely carved jade ship is one of some 400 treasures on display at Peabody
Place Museum and Gallery, the first decorative arts museum in downtown Memphis.
Comprising the personal collection of developer Jack Belz and his wife Marilyn, most of
the pieces date back to China's 19th-century Qing dynasty and range from a lacquered
cinnabar chair bearing dragons of jade to cloisonne horses and jade camels.The
museum was recently expanded to showcase other forms of artwork, including
European contemporary glass, Russian lacquer boxes, a selected group of Judaica,
and groupings of gemstones, rocks, and minerals. 119 S. Main, Pembroke Square, 523-

of which feature restaurants, party rooms, and closed-circuit TV viewing of the races.
1550 Ingram, West Memphis, 735-3670

Sun Studio
When a softspoken young man from Tupelo, Mississippi, entered Sun Studio in 1954,
the course of music history was changed forever. Elvis Presley cut his first single here
under the guidance of producer Sam Phillips, paving the way for a new breed of
musicians and putting Memphis on the cultural map. Besides still actively recording
name artists, the studio also offers public tours every hour on the half-hour. Of special
interest is the Sun Studio Gallery, which contains memorabilia of Sun legends, including
Carl Perkins, B.B. King, and Jerry Lee Lewis. And for hungry guests, there's the Sun
Studio Cafe, right next door. 706 Union, 521-0664

Tunica Casinos
Now the gambling center of the Mid-South, located just 30 miles from Memphis out
Highway 61, Tunica County is home to several glitzy casinos. Besides offering an array

big-name entertainment.
