Birthplace of Rock 'n' Roll

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.
Start off your visit on the 10th (Thu): immerse yourself in nature at Village Creek State Park, make a trip to Beale Street, stop by Saint Blues Guitar Workshop, then steep yourself in history at Sun Studio, and finally try to win big at Tunica Roadhouse Casino. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 11th (Fri): get engrossed in the history at Mud Island, try your luck at Gold Strike Casino, appreciate the history behind National Civil Rights Museum - Lorraine Motel, then make a trip to Graceland, and finally see a show at B.B. King's Blues Club.
