(approx. 60 minutes)

 

 

 

 

Riverview Tour:

Meander through Confederate Park, where civilians watched for 90 minutes in 1862 as Union and Confederate gun boats battled for the City. Established as a park in 1908, it still offers a majestic view of the Mississippi River and the riverboats below. This tour also takes you by the original post office, cotton warehouses and the site of the world’s first self-service grocery store. You will also see some of Memphis' first churches, like St Mary's with the oldest shrine in the country. (approx. 30 mins)

Free of vehicular traffic, travel to the heart of downtown over cobblestones to Court Square, known as the oldest park in Memphis. You’ll travel down Main Street Mall past the city’s first skyscraper, Thomas Edison’s telegraph station and through the park.

Uptown & Pinch District:

On a ride through the North side of Memphis you’ll see the Pyramid, nightclubs, art galleries and restaurants, including Westy’s where they serve a full menu until 3am nightly. The Pinch District is where many of the first Memphis immigrants established businesses, provided labor, and built their homes. One of the first neighborhoods, the Pinch District, was named for the "pinch gut" look of the Irish immigrants who had narrowly escaped the potato famine of Ireland. Uptown and the Pinch is experiencing a Downtown Renaissance led by some of the city’s best builders, architects and developers. (approx. 60 mins)
