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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Stax Museum of American Soul Music and Alex Haley House Museum. Slave Haven / Burkle Estate Museum and Ames Plantation will appeal to history buffs. Get out of town with these interesting Memphis side-trips: Parker Pioneer Homestead (in Harrisburg), Mississippi River State Park (in Marianna) and Craighead Forest Park (in Jonesboro). There's still lots to do: try your luck at Southland Park Gaming and Racing, appreciate the extensive heritage of Collierville TN Historic District, explore the galleries of Hampson Museum State Park, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Peter Catholic Church.

In July, daily temperatures in Memphis can reach 91°F, while at night they dip to 74°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
