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.

Go for a jaunt from Memphis to Tunica to see Horseshoe Casino about 44 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: stop by Dinstuhl's Fine Candy Company, Inc. and don't miss a visit to Graceland.

Known as the capital of country music, the thriving city of Nashville combines old-world southern charm with a progressive urban flair.

There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Downtown Nashville, browse the eclectic array of goods at Nashville Flea Market, look for gifts at Hatch Show Print, and get engrossed in the history at Lotz House Museum.
