Featuring the Bike Night on Beale Street, Greenbelt Park on Mud Island, Itta Bena Restaurant, and the Rum Boogie Cafe.
Bike Night on Beale Street Wednesdays at 5 pm 11 pm, weather permitting http://www.bealestreet.com Money talks and its saying that Beale Street is Tennessees number one tourist attraction based on revenue. No other tourist attraction in our great state even comes close to making the cash register cha-ching like the music, food, dancing, drinking and fun on Beale Street. Plus theres always interesting events like Wednesdays Bike Nights. In peak months, youll see as many as 1200 hogs and choppers lining the street! Its a sight like no other. And after the bikes hightail it, remember that some Beale Street clubs stay open to 5 am.
Greenbelt Park on Mud Island If youre looking for a place to walk, run, picnic or rollerblade on the river, Greenbelt Park is the spot. The 5,000 residents on Mud Island take advantage of this riverfront park which extends 1.5 miles from its parking lot on the south end to the parking lot on the north end. Perfect views of the Mississippi River with barges and boats rolling by. Youll also see fitness classes, yoga groups and sports teams and lots of dogs (on leashes) hanging out in the park.
Itta Bena Restaurant 145 Second Ave at Beale above BB Kings, 901-578-3031 Valet Parking offered on Second Ave just South of Beale http://www.bbkingclubs.com Itta Bena is an amazing restaurant on the third floor of BB Kings Blues Club.
