Guide to Uptown

Things to Do in Uptown

View Map

River views and trendy new restaurants characterize the funky and historic Pinch District in Uptown Memphis. Harbor Town, a planned mixed-use community with a bevy of local shops, cafes, restaurants, and parks is a densely walkable section of Uptown perched on a sandbar called Mud Island. Harbor Town features a marina, too, and all of Uptown can enjoy to view of boats sailing the river on pleasant afternoons.

Both the Cook Convention Center and the Cannon Center for the Performing Arts are also a part of Uptown Memphis. The world-class Cannon Center is the spot to hear the Memphis Symphony Orchestra, ballet, theatrical presentations, and concerts.
