|About these ratings|
The Mississippi River is an important part of Memphis' landscape, and to some there is no better place to enjoy it than Mud Island River Park. Stroll along the River Walk (a scale model of the lower half of the river) or learn about the influence the river had on Memphis' development at the Mississippi River Museum. If you're visiting in summer you can catch a concert at the Mud Island Amphitheater; everyone from Jimmy Buffet to Norah Jones and the Zac Brown Band has graced its stage.
If you're simply looking to escape the busy downtown area, bikes, kayaks and paddleboats are available for rent, plus there are several eateries and plenty of picnic. Mud Island River Park is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m from the end of May to early September; throughout the rest of the year, the park closes at 5 p.m. For a detailed schedule of upcoming concerts and events, visit the Mud Island River Park website.
