    Lined with bars and clubs where Memphis music legends often played, Beale St. was officially declared the “Home of the Blues” by an act of Congress in 1977. (From Aerial America)

    Beale Street is an awesome place to hang out from time to time. Great bars and great environment. Def a must do.

    WC Handy had been performing on Beale Street when he penned "Memphis Blues." It was the first published (in 1912) Blues song of the soon to be popular genre.
