Airport Car Rental
Memphis International Airport (MEM) is the major airport serving both the city of Memphis and the surrounding area that includes western Tennessee, northern Mississippi and eastern Arkansas. The airport used to be much busier as a hub for Northwest Airlines, but traffic bottomed out after Delta bought the airline and closed the hub. It has since started growing again and is currently undergoing reconstruction to better serve passengers and grow in the future.
Memphis is quite a popular tourist destination. The primary attractions are Beal Stree, home of the Memphis blues, and Graceland, Elvis Presley’s former estate. Travelers can also visit Sun Studio, the fabled recording studio where many legendary artists recorded albums. Other attractions located within a reasonable drive include Shiloh National Park, which preserves the battlefield of the Civil War Battle of Shiloh, and Tuepleo, the childhood home of Elvis Presley. Visiting all of these places is extremely easy if you pick up a rental car at Memphis Airport.
