  • Walkin' in Memphis: The paved trails and grassy expanse of Tom Lee Park downtown provide breathtaking views of the Mississippi River and Memphis skyline. Take a brisk walk or loll on a bench and watch the barges glide by on their way to New Orleans.
  • Browsing for Bargains at A. Schwab Dry Goods Store: Need Elvis aviator sunglasses? Voodoo candles? Sombreros or screwdrivers? Underpants or overalls? It's all here, and then some, at A. Schwab Dry Goods Store, 163 Beale St. (tel. 901/523-9782). Opened in 1876 and little-changed since then, this beloved old-time dime store and antiques museum has creaky wooden floors, cheap prices, and a mind-boggling array of stuff you won't find anywhere else.
  • Shopping for the Tackiest Elvis Souvenir in the World: The hip-swinging Elvis clock has become all too familiar, so why not try some stick-on Elvis sideburns, an Elvis temporary tattoo, an Elvis Christmas ornament, Elvis playing cards, an Elvis nightlight, or a little plastic tray displaying the infamous photo of Elvis arm-in-arm with President Richard Nixon.
