You could ride the monorail through downtown Memphis and to Mud Island park, they have a 1 mile or so scale model of the lower Mississippi river Or you could go to Sun Studios where legends like Elvis got their start, and where U2 recorded parts of Rattle and Hum. You could also visit Graceland and go eat at the Spaghetti Warehouse (yes, I look forward to visiting Memphis just for that.)

The Civil Rights Museum in the Lorraine Motel is compelling and moving, but not necessarily fun.

Beale Street. And see the ducks Peabody Hotel.

I am not sure if you are of legal drinking age, but an evening on Beale Street is a good time. Silky O'Sullivans, among other places. They have a goat.

Last time I was in Memphis I smoked a cigarette with one of the Olsen twins. The short, emaciated one. It was outside of a bar on Beale Street, so I'd suggest going there.

Same thing happened to me, except it was with Sarah Palin in Nome.
