days
Memphis

The largest city on the Mississippi River, Memphis bills itself as both the "Birthplace of Rock" and "Home of the Blues." With such a rich musical heritage, it shouldn't come as a surprise that Elvis Presley chose to live in Memphis during his later years.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Pinson Mounds State Park and Village Creek State Park. Get outdoors at Forrest L Wood Crowley's Ridge Nature Center and Chickasaw State Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Memphis: Dyess (Historic Dyess Colony: Boyhood Home of Johnny Cash & Johhny Cash Boyhood Home), Jonesboro (Craighead Forest Park & The Mall at Turtle Creek) and Oxford (Rowan Oak & Square Books). Next up on the itinerary: pause for some photo ops at National Civil Rights Museum, stop by Dinstuhl's Fine Candies, take an in-depth tour of Mud Island River Park, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Memphis Farmers Market.
