South Main is a fascinating place to explore - you won't believe how much there is to do in this one-square-mile neighborhood! You can spend an entire day and night in South Main and not get to experience a fraction of all there is to see and do. The Memphis Farmers Market, Blues Foundation, National Civil Rights Museum and Orpheum Theatre bring nearly 1 million people to South Main every year, along with events like Trolley Night and Spirits & Soul Fest. The streets are alive with art, trolleys, and historic architecture at every turn. Enjoy serene views and walks along the nearby Mississippi River or dance the night away at Earnestine & Hazel's and The Rumba Room.
