Fodor's Review

Memphis begins at the Mississippi River, which is celebrated in a 52-acre river park on Mud Island. A footbridge and monorail at 125 North Front Street get you to the island, where the five-block River Walk replicates the Mississippi's every twist, turn, and sandbar from Cairo, Illinois, to New Orleans, Louisiana. The park also has pedal boat and bicycle rentals and numerous gift shops.

Also in the park is the Mississippi River Museum, featuring a simulated Civil War gunboat battle. $8. Closed Mon.
