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.
Get some historical perspective at National Civil Rights Museum - Lorraine Motel and Beale Street. Discover out-of-the-way places like Mud Island River Park and Slave Haven / Burkle Estate Museum. There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Sun Studio, make a trip to Graceland, stroll the grounds of Elmwood Cemetery, and look for gifts at Lansky.
