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.
Venture out of the city with trips to The Lewis Ranch (in Nesbit), Horseshoe Casino (in Tunica) and Collierville TN Historic District (in Collierville). There's lots more to do: appreciate the history behind National Civil Rights Museum - Lorraine Motel, contemplate the long history of The Peabody Ducks, explore the world behind art at Belz Museum of Asian & Judaic Art, and test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms.

On the 10th (Mon), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: take some stellar pictures from Rock City, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Lookout Mountain, and then Head underground at Ruby Falls.
