Museum
“I don't know if it's a museum, shops, or what. It's really all of those. Locals don't think much of it--but if you're an Elvis fan, it's obviously a must.”

Park
“The Lichterman is a peaceful place to stroll and learn more about flora and fauna of The Midsouth. Take the Buckman Water Science Trail or spend time in the beautiful Backyard Wildlife Center. Love birding? This is a premier place to spot 120 species throughout the year. Binoculars and field guides are provided at no charge. Worth a short drive to southeast Memphis for an all-natural getaway. ”
