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 21st (Fri): appreciate the history behind National Civil Rights Museum - Lorraine Motel, then get to know the fascinating history of Beale Street, then explore and take pictures at AutoZone Park, and finally contemplate the long history of Sun Studio.

For traveler tips, reviews, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Memphis vacation planner.

Despite its laid-back college vibe, Austin is an influential center for politics, technology, film, and music.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at National Museum of the Pacific War and LBJ Presidential Library. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Austin: Becker Vineyards (in Stonewall), Garrison Brothers Distillery (in Hye) and San Antonio (Natural Bridge Caverns, The Alamo, & more). There's lots more to do: get a sense of history and politics at Texas State Capitol, identify plant and animal life at Congress Avenue Bridge / Austin Bats, admire the landmark architecture of The Driskill, and get engrossed in the history at Admiral Nimitz State Historic Site.

To see traveler tips, reviews, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Austin trip itinerary builder site .
