So Much to Explore Beyond The Parkview and Midtown Memphis

 | The Parkview Memphis

You already know The Parkview Memphis is ideally located in Midtown Memphis, overflowing with exciting social activities, and surrounded by so much to do just steps from our door. Our neighborhood includes Overton Park, the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art, and the Memphis Zoo, to name a few. But, did you know about all the other exciting things our Independent Living residents are just a short trip away from?

Beale Street is alive and well with food and entertainment. One of the most-stop in the area is the Memphis Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum. It is the only museum in Memphis that tells the COMPLETE story of Memphis’ musical history. Plus, a free shuttle picks you up from there and takes you to the iconic Graceland (the home of Elvis) or Sun Studio (the birthplace of rock n’ roll).

Steps from the Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum, you’ll find the National Civil Rights Museum at the Lorraine Motel. Known as one of the premier cultural museums in the nation, the museum’s mission is “to share the culture and lessons from the American Civil Rights Movement and explore how this significant era continues to shape equality and freedom globally.”

If you’re looking to enjoy the great outdoors, another can’t-miss attraction is the Mud Island River Park Riverwalk. This walk along the river is an exact scale model of the Lower Mississippi River, which maps out 20 cities along the Riverwalk and flows out into an acre-sized representation of the Gulf of Mexico. Shelby Farms Park is one of the largest urban parks in the nation. It’s got more than 40 miles of trails, 20 bodies of water, and a herd of buffalo! Your next stop should be at the Memphis Botanic Garden. With more than 96 acres of breathtaking specialty gardens, you’ll have a full day ahead.

The list of things to do in our city could go on forever, but it’s easy to see that our Independent  Living residents and their families have as much to enjoy outside of The Parkview Memphis neighborhood as they do inside.
