There is a lot to do at Mud Island River Park . Along the River Walk revisit historical events and learn about geographical transformations on a 5-block long replica of the lower Mississippi River. Float in the model of the Gulf of Mexico in a pedal boat or ride around the park or downtown Memphis on a bicycle. You can also get a great view of downtown Memphis, the Mississippi River and Mud Island River Park by riding on a monorail.
There is no stopping in the Memphis area without a visit to Graceland. Home of the King of Rock 'n' Roll. See firsthand how Elvis Presley became the most celebrated entertainer in the world. Visit his Car Museum and Access Elvis and see all his different costumes. Before you leave, be sure to go through the Lisa Marie and Hound Dog Airplanes.
Watch research in progress; see firsthand the result of careful excavations and laboratory analysis by station archeologists.

Visit the refuge if you enjoy bird watching or just the call of nature. The refuge , just four miles west of the Mississippi River and approximately 10 miles north of KOA at exit 21, brings spring and fall migratory songbirds as they migrate from Central and South America, such as the painted bunting. It also offers auto tour routes with wildlife observation, photography and hiking opportunities.
