Had been here 25 years ago. The additions to Beal Street and surrounding area make it worthwhile. There are plenty attractions for music lovers and other things to visit to keep you occupied. Things like, Sun Studios where rock and roll and Blues legends got...More

If you go to Memphis, you have to check it out. There’s a lot of live music, bars and good food. The street is closed and you have to walk, you can’t drive.

Visited Beale Street whilst in Memphis. The place is absolutely buzzing with people and music from every corner. They were preparing for Music Festival and it was amazing. Had food in 2 different restaurants. So much choice. A must visit

It is a small area with lots of touristy stores and restaurants. One did have tons of guitars hanging from the ceiling which was cool.

It is famous and you should go. It was clean and extremely well protected by the police presence there. There was a good selection of food and the live music was great.

The music and the shoes are so fun. The street is not that long so easy to enjoy the whole thing. Lots of good places to eat too.

Don’t waste your time going to Beale Street before 11.am because nothing is open. There is a $5 cover charge per person to enter most venues with a live band, where as it is free to go into any place in Nashville! It is an...More

We walked around the street after dinner. There were families with kids of varying ages. I think the atmosphere is fine. I wouldn't leave my teen aged children on their own.
