Memphis

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.
On the 10th (Tue), grab your bike and head to Village Creek State Park, get to know the fascinating history of Beale Street, then look for gifts at Saint Blues Guitar Workshop, then steep yourself in history at Sun Studio, and finally try to win big at Tunica Roadhouse Casino. Here are some ideas for day two: stroll around Mud Island, try to win big at Gold Strike Casino, then explore the galleries of National Civil Rights Museum - Lorraine Motel, then examine the collection at Graceland, and finally join in the after-dark buzz at B.B. King's Blues Club.
