On your next trip to Memphis, make sure to consider employing our Memphis car hire services as your main means of transportation through the largest city in the state. Home to over six hundred and seventy thousand people, Memphis is forever associated with that of the King of Rock’n’Roll himself, Elvis Presley.

The city is served by the Memphis Airport, as a side-note, Memphis is the main FedEx distribution center and this makes the Memphis Airport the busies cargo airport in the country. You can also get into the city by road and rail, but if you are touching down here, you’ll want to employ our Memphis car rental services to have a car of your choice ready and waiting for you at the airport at an hour that you specify.

Widely regarded by many as being the home of blues music, Memphis has seen a lot of ups and downs over the years, and while there are many new developments around the city the center is rather older. Lately it has seen something of a rebirth as many citizens have started moving there and making it a safer place where you can go visit and relax.

Beale Street, also known as the “Home of Blues” is where dozens of bars and clubs can be found, most of which feature live music. The street is closed to vehicles at night and this has lead to a particularly interesting local ‘custom’ by which you can drink on the street, some bars having a ‘drinks to go’ window where you can get a beer from and continue walking.

The Memphis Rock’n’Soul Museum used to be housed in the Gibson guitar factory across the street, nowadays famous musicians will sometimes swing through to pick up custom guitars or to play a set at the Gibson Lounge.

Any music lover worth his or her salt will have to visit Graceland, the home of Elvis Presley. While many would consider it a ‘tacky tourist trap’ it should not be missed as you might be pleasantly surprised. There are so many things Elvis related to see here, from the house itself, to his bedroom, customized airplanes, the car collection, costumes and more.

These are of course only a few of the things that you can see and do while in Memphis, so make sure to employ our Memphis car hire services as you will surely want to explore the place in as much detail as possible.
