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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Pinson Mounds State Park and Stax Museum of American Soul Music. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Sun Studio and Rowan Oak. Explore Memphis' surroundings by going to Hampson Museum State Park (in Wilson), Jonesboro (Jonesboro bowling center, Craighead Forest Park, & more) and Mississippi River State Park (in Marianna). The adventure continues: appreciate the history behind National Civil Rights Museum - Lorraine Motel, contemplate the long history of Slave Haven / Burkle Estate Museum, don't miss a visit to The Peabody Ducks, and hike along Village Creek State Park.
