West Tennessee

Surrounded by the Tennessee and Mississippi Rivers, western Tennessee offers visitors a backdrop of natural wonders with traditional musical accompaniment. A great nightlife can be found in the street that is considered the “home of the blues”: Beale Street in Memphis. A visit to “Graceland” or the “Stax Museum of American Soul” offers historical musical highlights. You can experience natural wonders on the Tennessee and Mississippi Rivers, Reelfoot Lake and Kentucky Lake, as well as on the “Tennessee River Freshwater Pearl Farm”. The Civil War Area and the National Civil Rights Museum also offer a glimpse into Tennessee’s rich history. In short, it can be said that this region represents everything that makes Tennessee unique.


Memphis is located in Shelby County and is the largest city in Tennessee. It is often referred to as “River City”, “Bluff City” or “M-Town”. The city on the east bank of the Mississippi River was founded in 1819 by former President Andrew Jackson, Judge John Overton and General James Winchester and was named after the ancient capital of ancient Egypt. A rather sad chapter in the history of Memphis includes racism as well as the oppression of Afro-Americans and not least the murder of Martin Luther King in the Lorraine Motel, which now houses the National Civil Rights Museum. In this day and age, Memphis is primarily known as the birthplace of rock’n ‘ Roll and known as the home of the ubiquitous blues, it can rightly be called America’s music factory. One of the biggest attractions in Memphis is the mansion “Graceland” by Elvis Presley. But beyond that, Memphis has many other interesting sights and cultural facilities, as well as shopping centers and excellent restaurants to offer. Recommended are the “Davies Manor House”, the “Memphis Botanic Garden” and the “Memphis Rock’n’Soul Museum”. As a tourist, you shouldn’t miss a trip on the legendary paddle steamer “Memphis Queen”. A visit to the “Sun Studio”, the birthplace of Rock’n’Roll, should also be at the top of the program list.


The small country town of Jackson is located on the Forked Deer River in a fertile area in western Tennessee and is in Madison County. Jackson is also the administrative seat of Madison County and its largest city. It was founded in 1820 under the original name “Alexandria”, but renamed Jackson a few years later in honor of the former President Andrew Jackson. In the past, Jackson was best known as an important railroad crossing. Today only a few museums remind of the important history of the railway as a traffic junction. Small but nice – that is the motto here, which is why Jackson does not offer an excessive number of museums or sights, but those that do exist make a visit definitely worthwhile. We highly recommend the “Britton Lane Battlefield”.
