Kid Friendly Attractions in Memphis

Memphis isn't just for Elvis fanatics, it is also a heavenly place for the little ones. Imagine discovering Memphis by land and water aboard one amazing vehicle. Ride the Ducks, a floating bus tour, will teach you about the history, humor and heroes of this legendary town while you cruise the river. Tour includes a visit to Sun Studio, Mud Island Riverpark, National Civil Rights Museum and many other hot spots. Planetariums need not be about dark places and boring lectures. This planetarium has spiced up its shows with laser lights and music from bands such as the Grateful Dead, Pearl Jam and Pink Floyd. There is even an Elvis show during Elvis Week in August. During special meteorological events, such as meteor showers, the planetarium staff sets up telescopes on the front lawn and encourages visitors to bring their families as well as a picnic dinner. After a hectic morning, have an afternoon picnic at Overton Park. There are trails for hiking and biking, tennis courts, a playground and picnic area. Elvis himself used stage his jam-packed concerts in the rainbow-painted amphitheater. Discover the many family-friendly activities of Memphis, and show your little dudes how to rock.
