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.
Explore Memphis' surroundings by going to Tunica (Tunica County River Park, Horseshoe Tunica, &more), Collierville (WC Johnson Park, Collierville TN Historic District, &more) and Tupelo (Tupelo Automobile Museum, Elvis Presley Birthplace & Museum, &more). There's still lots to do: pause for some photo ops at National Civil Rights Museum - Lorraine Motel, contemplate the long history of Sun Studio, explore the galleries of Stax Museum of American Soul Music, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Memphis Zoo.
