Weather InformationMemphis experiences four seasons. Spring brings moderate temperatures that fall in the mid-70s. Summers can get pretty hot, with temperatures rising into the mid-90s in August. The fall sees mild weather, with October temperatures hovering in the mid-70s. Winters can be cooler, with temperatures dropping into the 40s.
Crowd InformationThe spring and fall are the busiest times to visit due to the most ideal weather and a variety of festivals, such as the Mid-South Fair in September and October. The largest crowds come for the Memphis-In-May festivities, which include the Beale Street Music Festival, World Championship Barbeque Cooking Contest, and the Sunset Symphony; August's Elvis Week is another big draw.
Closure InformationMost hotels, shops, and attractions remain open year-round, but the Mud Island River Park closes from October through April, and every Monday throughout the year. The National Civil Rights Museum closes every Tuesday and on major holidays.
When to SaveMemphis is an affordable destination at most times, but many attractions will offer discounts in the high season.
