Memphis — 21 nights

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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Tupelo (Elvis Presley Birthplace & Museum, Tupelo Automobile Museum, &more), Oxford (Southside Gallery, Lyceum-The Circle Historic District, &more) and Collierville (Collierville TN Historic District & WC Johnson Park). And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Sun Studio, meet the residents at Memphis Zoo, get the lay of the land with Tastin' 'Round Town, and take an in-depth tour of National Civil Rights Museum - Lorraine Motel.

To see other places to visit, more things to do, maps, and more tourist information, use the Memphis trip planner.
