Answer this1 AnswerYou definitely want to listen to some live blues while you're in Memphis. There is nothing that sets the mood for romance like amazing music and award winning food. The Beale Street Cafe and B.B. King's Restaurant and Blues Club are the place to be. The Backbeat Bus tour takes you to all the Memphis sites in a vintage bus and gives you the inside scoop on this rich historical city. The Westin Memphis Beale Street offers a romantic getaway package as well. I hope this helps you plan your trip. Have a wonderful weekend!
