This is the greatest music venue I've seen - by far. Everywhere has top-quality performances all day and all night. It's a good job I don't live there or I'd never leave!

Beale street is cute if you like walking down a few blocks with drunk people going from bar to bar. I was disappointed that most of the restaurants charge a cover charge to get in to eat.

Walked down the street and tried out all the different bars. There was a big police presence which was comforting. We actually got to see Chad Smith, the drummer from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, do a quick set with a band at one of the bars. It was definitely the highlight of the trip!

This is a place where the whole family can visit. There is a place to eat, and rest if you want, you can also ride the bugy.

It was great to see entertainment out on the street but the cost of parking nearby was a shock. Plenty of places to eat, drink and shop

Beale Street was exactly what I was expecting and then some! I loved the fact you can buy drinks and walk down the street which is pedestrianised at night. Loads of great bars to nip in and out of - some with and some without a cover charge. Kings Palace Cafe was a great place to sit outside and listen... More
