Tourist Attractions - Graceland, Sun Studios, etc

Hi I have two full days in Memphis - Monday 8th & Tuesday 9th October.

Would you recommend booking online in advance for attractions like Graceland / Sun Studios / Civil Rights Museum?

Also, can anyone recommend any other must-see attractions or would the above be enough for two days?

Thanks, Brian

Brian, at that time of the year and on a Monday and Tuesday I don't think you need to pre book anythng. Yes I would move your two hour or so visits to Graceland and CRM to the mornings so that you have time for the Memphis Mojo Tour at 1:30 or 2:30pm. on Tuesday. It's an upbeat exposure to Memphis born Rock n Roll and leaves you on a high note. Just stroll down Beale St. in the early evening and follow the sounds you like. Catch a Duck March and maybe a history tour at the Peabody Hotel on Monday. Sample Memphis Pork Ribs at Blues City Cafe at Second and Beale. To to access more attractions more expediently and eliminate travel time in that short visit, stay at a Downtown hotel and walk / trolley ride to destinations. Welcome to the Home Of The Blues and The Birthplace of RocknRoll!

If you're an Elvis fan, Sun and Graceland will take a whole day. Note that there is a free shuttle from downtown to Graceland to Sun, but you must take the studio tour to use it. Other things to fill your time will depend on what you enjoy. In addition to the above mentioned Mojo tour, you might enjoy Mud Island, the zoo, Rock and Soul or Stax for starters.
