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.
Stax Museum of American Soul Music has been added to your itinerary. Kick off your visit on the 25th (Mon): examine the collection at Stax Museum of American Soul Music, then contemplate the long history of Sun Studio, and then make a trip to Graceland. On the 26th (Tue), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: try your luck at Horseshoe Casino, meet the residents at Memphis Zoo, then look for gifts at Memphis Music, and finally get to know the fascinating history of Beale Street.

To see maps, reviews, other places to visit, and more tourist information, you can read our Memphis road trip app .
