Overview

You'll never fall into the tourist traps when you travel with Frommer's. It's like having a friend show you around, taking you to the places locals like best. Our expert authors have already gone everywhere you might go—they've done the legwork for you, and they're not afraid to tell it like it is, saving you time and money. No other series offers candid reviews of so many hotels and restaurants in all price ranges. Every Frommer's Travel Guide is up-to-date, with exact prices for everything, dozens of color maps, and exciting coverage of sports, shopping, and nightlife. You'd be lost without us!

With Frommer's in hand, you'll discover the highlights of two major capitals of American music: Nashville, country music's mecca, and Memphis, the city that gave birth to the blues. We'll take you to the hottest shows, and to sizzling nightclubs where you can two-step, hear the old masters play, or discover up-and-coming new talent. From the Grand Ol' Opry to the hallowed halls of Graceland, you'll walk in the footsteps of musical giants.

We've also got the lowdown on the region's best restaurants, serving everything from elegant New Southern cuisine to downhome barbecue. And you'll have a wide variety of accommodations to choose from: the classic Peabody, with its signature marching ducks; the bustling Opryland Hotel; B&Bs with true Southern hospitality; and reliable, affordable motels.

Detailed and accurate, it all comes complete with neighborhood maps; a complete shopping guide; the best trip-planning advice; and side trips to nearby distilleries and Civil War battlefields.
