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 28th (Thu): explore the world behind art at Belz Museum of Asian & Judaic Art, then examine the collection at National Civil Rights Museum - Lorraine Motel, and then get to know the fascinating history of Beale Street. Here are some ideas for day two: stop by Bass Pro Shops at the Pyramid and then contemplate the long history of Sun Studio.
