When is the best time to fly to Memphis?
Spring and summer (April to September) are the most popular seasons in Memphis, tourism-wise. Blue skies and temperatures in the low to mid-20s are an everyday occurrence in spring, while nature lovers will also enjoy seeing the city blossom with azaleas, magnolias and hydrangeas.
Summer is the busiest time in Memphis, partly due to school holidays, but it's also when the temperatures are sweltering and humidity is high. The climate can be uncomfortable for some and if you do visit during this period, pack light and bring your patience -- the city is hot and packed with tourists.
The week leading up to the anniversary of Elvis’s death, in August, sees an influx of people taking flights to Memphis. Another crowded time in the city is during May when the popular Memphis in May festival is held, celebrating Memphis music, barbecue and art.
Visitors should take into consideration that booking accommodation and flights to Memphis will be more expensive during any of these peak season times.
Autumn and winter are generally unpredictable weather-wise and experience fewer crowds, winter in particular. The autumn months are slightly more pleasant, while winter is mostly chilly and grey. If you don't mind packing a jacket and umbrella then this can be the best time to look for cheap flights to Memphis. Hotel rates are usually discounted during the winter months too.
Tempt your senses with a trip to Memphis. Besides being home to Graceland, Elvis Presley’s mansion, Memphis has enough tastes, smells, sights, and sounds for any traveller. From old-fashioned-backyard barbecues to toe-tapping rhythm and blues music, a flight to Memphis lands tourists right in the heart of the land of Rock'n'Roll.
Spend a day in Memphis touring The King’s mansion in Graceland before dining on black-eyed peas and cornbread at one of the city’s local diners. Take a steamboat ride on the Muddy Mississippi River or watch a minor league baseball game at AutoZone Park. Whether you’re channelling Elvis with some old time rock-n-roll or need a little Southern cooking to soothe your soul, a trip to Memphis is worthwhile for any traveller.
