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.
Start off your visit on the 5th (Tue): examine the collection at Graceland, then examine the collection at Stax Museum of American Soul Music, and then contemplate the long history of Sun Studio. On the 6th (Wed), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: contemplate the long history of National Civil Rights Museum - Lorraine Motel, then admire the masterpieces at Belz Museum of Asian & Judaic Art, and then try your luck at Horseshoe Tunica.
