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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Cat Head Delta Blues & Folk Art and Slave Haven / Burkle Estate Museum. Head to Covington's Historic Square and Landers Centerfor some retail therapy. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Memphis: Clarksdale (The Delta Blues Museum & Stan Streets Hambone Art Gallery), Tunica (Gold Strike Casino & Horseshoe Tunica) and Rowan Oak (in Oxford). There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at Stax Museum of American Soul Music, take in a show at The Orpheum Theatre, explore the different monuments and memorials at Elmwood Cemetery, and steep yourself in history at Sun Studio.
