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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Stax Museum of American Soul Music and Ducks Unlimited Waterfowling Heritage Center. Get some cultural insight at National Civil Rights Museum - Lorraine Motel and Slave Haven / Burkle Estate Museum. Go for a jaunt from Memphis to Tunica to see Horseshoe Casino about 44 minutes away. There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Sun Studio, admire all the interesting features of AutoZone Park, make a trip to Graceland, and try to win big at Southland Park Gaming and Racing.

For other places to visit, photos, maps, and more tourist information, read our Memphis tour planner.

If you are flying in from India, the closest major airport is Memphis International Airport. In May, daily temperatures in Memphis can reach 31°C, while at night they dip to 19°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 28th (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
