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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Village Creek State Park and Parkin Archeological State Park. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Sun Studio and National Civil Rights Museum - Lorraine Motel. Take a break from Memphis with a short trip to Horseshoe Casino in Tunica, about 44 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: try to win big at Southland Park Gaming and Racing, see the interesting displays at Stax Museum of American Soul Music, don't miss a visit to The Peabody Ducks, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Beale Street.
