The Memphis Pyramid is another wonder of the city, being one of the tallest and weirdest looking buildings in Memphis, its no wonder it attracts so many visitors each year.

The Alamo, an 18th-century Spanish mission preserved as a museum, marks an infamous 1836 battle for Texan independence from Mexico. Following the San Antonio River, the beautiful River Walk is a landmark pedestrian promenade lined with cafes and shops, while the 750-ft. Tower of the Americas overlooks the city.
