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. Get a sense of the local culture at Sun Studio and Beale Street. Change things up with these side-trips from Memphis: Cherokee Valley Golf Club (in Olive Branch) and Horseshoe Casino (in Tunica). The adventure continues: make a trip to Graceland, stop by Dinstuhl's Fine Candy Company, Inc., try your luck at Southland Park Gaming and Racing, and test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms.
