Answers from Our Experts (1)

For a trip to Memphis, be sure to pack for the weather and sunny skies, as the city is located in the Sunbelt. During the summer months, the temperature ranges between 85 and 93 degrees, plus humidity. For those months, be sure to bring light clothing, sandals, sunglasses and sunscreen.

Home to the World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest, Memphis will have you sampling its many barbecue joints, so you may want to pack some looser fitting clothes, or ones you don’t mind getting grubby with your sticky fingers.

And don’t forget the usual suspects, such as a camera, batteries, good walking shoes and chargers for all your gadgets. You’ll want to remember your time in Memphis with plenty of pictures, and you’ll be able to walk around in enough museums and sites to make it worth your while to invest in a good pair of shoes.
