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.
Appreciate the collections at National Civil Rights Museum - Lorraine Motel and Belz Museum of Asian & Judaic Art. Visit Sun Studio and Beale Street for their historical value. Step out of Memphis with an excursion to Horseshoe Casino in Tunica--about 44 minutes away. There's still lots to do: make a trip to Graceland, sample the fine beverages at Pyramid Vodka, steep yourself in history at The Peabody Ducks, and look for gifts at Memphis Music.
