What do Elvis Presley, Otis Redding, and Johnny Cash all have in common? They all made it big in Memphis, the birthplace of Rock ‘n’ Roll. If you’re thinking of interning in Memphis you probably already know that this city is famous for its live music and Southern food. Memphis draws thousands each year for Elvis Week, a celebration of music past and present. Beale Street, a historical landmark officially named Home of the Blues through an act of congress in 1977 continually draws the finest musicians that blues and jazz has to offer.
Memphis interns have to stop by the Memphis Flea Market (known as “The Big One”) at least once. The market boasts over 1,000 vendors and opens the third weekend of each month.
When your Memphis internship lets out for the weekend, don’t miss the Mississippi River cruise on the only authentic overnight paddlewheel steamboat in the United States. With the decorations of the Victorian era and a wide selection of beer and wine you’ll experience American history with every modern amenity you might possibly need.
Internships in Memphis are an experience for all the senses. Be sure to try out the famous Rendezvous barbecue, go to the Memphis Zoo, and attend at least one Elvis Tribute Contest during your time here. Check out our selection of Memphis internships and apply today!
