A Tourist’s Guide to West Memphis

When most people think of Memphis, their first thoughts go to Tennessee and the Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum. But, just over the Mississippi River lies West Memphis in Arkansas. It might not be as well known, but it’s still chock full of history, museums, and great places to visit. 

West Memphis, Arkansas, has a population of about 25,000 people and is located in eastern Crittenden County, about eight miles from downtown Memphis, Tennessee. During the 30s, 40s, and 50s, 8th street in West Memphis was considered “Beale Street West” because it was home to a nightlife that rivaled the one found across the river. As the city grew, it became an essential spot for the trucking industry, which coined it as the “Crossroads of America.”

The city still bustles from those times. Downtown West Memphis, called Broadway, offers nearly 100 stores and restaurants and hosts live blues singers and events in the city’s “Blues on Broadway.”

Top Sights and Attractions in West Memphis

West Memphis Welcome Center

If you want to see everything the city has to offer and learn about its history that goes back more than 10,000 years, you’ll want to visit the West Memphis Welcome Center. The people at the center love to tell stories of the city they love.

Sun Studio

You can’t talk about West Memphis without mentioning Sun Studio. It’s the studio where Elvis Presley recorded his first song at the age of 20 and is known to many as the birthplace of Rock n’ Roll. Legends like Johnny Cash and Roy Orbison also recorded music there. At night, it’s still a recording studio, but tours are available throughout the day.

Graceland

Speaking of the King, his home Graceland is less than a 20-minute drive from West Memphis and offers guided or self-guided tours.

Big River Crossing

The Big River Crossing is a great place to walk along and take in the sights and sounds of the mighty Mississippi River. You can even rent a bike with the city’s Bike Share program.

Southland Casino Racing

Southland Casino Racing (known for its greyhound races) is expanding throughout the summer of 2022 to include a new casino complex and a high-rise hotel. The multi-million dollar expansion will offer new games, tables, and exciting new dining options.

 Body and Mind – Cannabis Dispensary

Of course, no trip or vacation is complete without taking care of your body and mind. In May of 2020, West Memphis passed legislation allowing the use of medical marijuana. If you’re a medical card holder in the state of Arkansas, a great place to visit is the Body and Mind dispensary located just off of Broadway at 203 North OK Street.

Body and Mind was the first medical marijuana cannabis dispensary to open in West Memphis, and they take a lot of pride in offering high-quality products. They’re open seven days a week and provide educational resources online and through their friendly staff. You can order online, get same-day delivery, or express pickup.
