Overview

Three Famous Music Streets in three of America’s Greatest Music Cities

Yet another great value Music Themed Tour from Travelling Time*  This time we will visit three of the best known Streets in the USA!

  • Bourbon Street in the French Quarter of New Orleans. This Louisiana city on the Mississippi River, near the Gulf of Mexico is nicknamed the “Big Easy” and known for its round-the-clock nightlife, vibrant live-music scene and spicy, singular cuisine.
  • Beale Street in the heart of Memphis – famous for the influential strains of blues, soul and rock ‘n’ roll that originated there. Elvis Presley, B.B. King and Johnny Cash recorded albums at the legendary Sun Studio, and Presley’s Graceland mansion is a popular attraction. Other music landmarks include the Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum, Blues Hall of Fame and Stax Museum of American Soul Music.
  • Broadway – in Music City USA –  Nashville Tennessee!  Originally named Broad Street, musicians started performing in bars near the river in the 1930s and so a thriving music scene developed on Lower Broadway – the section of Broadway that runs from 1st Avenue to 5th Avenue. The official Nashville CVB defines a honky tank as “an establishment that contains at least one rockin’ stage, cold beverages, and a party that lasts all day, every day.  Live music plays in most bars and restaurants along Lower Broadway from as early as 10 a.m. to 3 a.m.  which is how the street came to be known as “Honky Tonk Highway”.

By joining one of our exclusive tours, you will enjoy short journeys between towns and cities in a comfortable vehicle suitable for your group size.  Both your knowledgeable driver and a member of the Travelling Time Team will be on hand to provide a deeper understanding of the landmarks and make sure that your trip is as enjoyable as possible. You wont have to study maps or use navigation systems – as you will travel around as our distinguished guest: exactly as you deserve!

A combination of perfectly planned sightseeing trips, live music experiences, fantastic attractions and loads of free time to explore the wonderful towns and cities you visit – make Travelling Time’s Tours the best way to see the USA!

A brilliant company to deal with. We were 6 people celebrating a 60th birthday at two locations Memphis and New Orleans. Travelling Time helped at every opportunity nothing was too much trouble. The hotels recommended were excellent as were the various excursions that we booked.
