Home to the Clark Tower, the East Memphis skyline is most dominated by the college scene. Crichton College and the University of Memphis are both located here, and host concerts, sports and theater events on their campuses. Some of the largest hotels and shopping centers in the city were built in the area, too, including Oak Court Mall and Park Place Center.

The Memphis Botanic Garden at Audubon Park offers trails and gardens exhibiting the flora of the region and the Pink Palace and Planetarium is the region’s premier science and historical museum. Children will enjoy the renowned Children’s Museum of Memphis. The lush Dixon Gallery and Gardens is this area.
