Student Travel Tours
Student groups participating in Memphis student travel explorations will have no problem finding things to do, the problem will be finding all the time to get everything done! The home of Graceland is located at the far western end of Tennessee and has been a booming river port long before it became the music breeding ground that it is today. With a bluff that looks out over the Mississippi River into Arkansas this location has long been sought out as a safe and strategic area. The bluffs have been inhabited for nearly 15,000 years by native peoples, Spanish explorers, The French, The English and many more. When the Chicksaw Nation ceded all of western Tennessee to the United States in 1818 John Overton, General James Winchester, and Andrew Jackson founded Memphis as a speculative land investment. Named after the capital of ancient Egypt, it took almost a century for the city to live up to its name but now it wears it with pride. Memphis is an ideal choice for student group tours looking to be inspired by music education and history.
Music Legends On Your Memphis, Tennessee Student Travel Tour
Memphis is a city in continual evolution but one thing that remains constant is the town's dedication to great music culture. On day one of your Memphis student travel tour you will visit Graceland. Elvis Presley chose Memphis, as the home of his sprawling mansion, Graceland, and Memphis will forever go down in history as The King's place. Elvis not only lived in Memphis but it was at the Sun Studios located in Memphis that he made his first recording. Touring Graceland is a must for any Memphis student travel tours agenda. After Graceland your group will enjoy lunch on Beale Street (the home of the blues) at Pat O'Brien's. From there it is off to the Smithsonian Institute ("Rock n Soul") where there are numerous recording greats documented for students to learn from and enjoy.
Day two will kick off with breakfast at the hotel and meeting up with your Memphis tour guide to head to the Pink Palace with IMAX and Planetarium. After lunch at the Elvis Presley theme restaurant there will be a sightseeing adventure on the Mississippi Riverboat. From there it is off to the March of the Famous Peabody Ducks and then a delicious dinner at Jillian's including a $20.00 game card.
Day three your Memphis student travel tour group will meet Ya Ya and Le Le (the famous Panda duo) at the Memphis Zoo. After lunch it is time to enjoy the Mud Island River Park where students can bike, canoe, and kayak.
