I spent a full day docked in Memphis on October 11, on my Mississippi River cruise. Our Hop On, Hop Off shore excursion buses took us to various tourist attractions from our landing location. We walked from the Civil Rights Museum over to Central Station, then up Main Street along the MATA trolley route all the way up to Beale Street and over to the Rock and Soul Museum. We did not at all feel we were in any danger. Local people were friendly, and there were plenty of tourists around. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there.
