Birthplace of Rock 'n' Roll

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.
Explore Memphis' surroundings by going to Horseshoe Tunica (in Tunica) and Jackson (Rusty's TV and Movie Car Museum & Samuel T Bryant Distillery). And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Graceland, steep yourself in history at Sun Studio, appreciate the extensive heritage of Beale Street, and make a trip to The Peabody Ducks.
