Memphis

— 12 nights

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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Memphis: Tunica (Tunica Roadhouse Casino & Horseshoe Tunica), Samuel T Bryant Distillery (in Jackson) and Tina Turner Museum @ Flagg Grove School (in Brownsville). There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Sun Studio, pause for some photo ops at National Civil Rights Museum - Lorraine Motel, make a trip to Beale Street, and explore and take pictures at Natchez Trace Pkwy.

To find more things to do, ratings, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Memphis online holiday planner.
