Visit the Parks
Memphis has plenty of parks that you can visit for that much needed outdoor time.

Remember, the City asks that you please wear masks when you are out in public.
Keep in mind that you will need to continue to practice social distancing when you go to these parks. Others will likely be visiting as well, so you should follow social distancing guidelines and keep a fair distance (at least 6 ft) away from others. On top of this, you should also look into statements made by the Shelby County Health Department so that you can remain safe while out exploring.
Go to the Mississippi River
The Mississippi River is one of the most well-known running waters in the United States. It stretches for thousands of miles, so you need to see when you visit. Activities for the mighty Missip include lounging by the riverside, canoeing in the harbor, learning some of the city’s history, and exploring new recreational areas around the river.
Beale Street is another well-known location that you should visit as you make your way to the Mississippi River. Enjoy a leisurely walk down Beale Street while you explore the various shops and amazing artwork showcased in Downtown Memphis. You can enjoy both man-made sites and the beauty of nature as you go sightseeing.
