Unwind at Mud Island River Park
Just steps from your door you’ll find Mud Island River Park, a sprawling nature reserve encircled by the Mississippi River. Cycling enthusiasts and casual sightseers alike will enjoy the many bike trails that wind and weave their way through lush flora and along the picturesque river. If hiring a bicycle doesn’t strike your fancy, take a ride on a charming pedal boat at the ‘Gulf of Mexico’ – a one-acre expanse of water that offers views of the Memphis skyline.
Afterwards, pay a visit to the nearby Mississippi River Museum. Check out the array of civil war artefacts, musical history displays, and the fascinating ‘Theatre of Disasters’ exhibit, a collection of relics from historic river tragedies including the great earthquake of 1811, yellow fever plagues, and steamboat disasters.
