The birthplace of rock n roll
There are plenty of unmissable places to visit, but nothing is more unmissable than the Sun Records recording studio. Artists like Johnny Cash, Rob Orbison, BB King and Elvis Presley recorded for the first time here, making it an important place in the history of modern music. This isn't just any recording studio ... this is where rock'n'roll was born
From 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM you can take a fascinating tour of the studios. Children under 11 can enter for free, and adults pay only $12 which, judging by the faces of those who do the tour, is more than generous. But if for some reason you don't want to take the tour, you can just stroll through the cafe, drink a milkshake, eat a hamburger and, of course, put some music on the jukebox! You'll be astonished at the wealth of details: authentic posters from the era, photos, seats embroidered with the names of great artists ... just the cafe is amazing! As the bartender told me, "This is the coolest place in Memphis. Yes, it is!"
