Known as the capital of country music, the thriving city of Nashville combines old-world southern charm with a progressive urban flair.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Downtown Nashville and The Johnny Cash Museum & Cafe. There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, admire the natural beauty at Gaylord Opryland Resort Gardens, test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, and contemplate the long history of Belle Meade Plantation.

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.
Kick off your visit on the 21st (Fri): steep yourself in history at Sun Studio, then see the interesting displays at Memphis Rock 'n' Soul Museum, then examine the collection at National Civil Rights Museum - Lorraine Motel, and finally explore the world behind art at Belz Museum of Asian & Judaic Art. Keep things going the next day: don't miss a visit to Graceland, look for gifts at Dinstuhl's Fine Candy Company, Inc., then stop by Burke's Book Store, and finally make a trip to Beale Street.
