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.
You've now added Memphis Central Station to your itinerary. Get out of town with these interesting Memphis side-trips: Thacker Mountain Rail Trail (in Oxford), Hampson Museum State Park (in Wilson) and Horseshoe Tunica (in Tunica). There's still lots to do: test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, steep yourself in history at Sun Studio, make a trip to Graceland, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Memphis Zoo.
