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.
Get out of town with these interesting Memphis side-trips: Tunica (River Bend Links & Horseshoe Casino) and Oxford (Rowan Oak, Confederate Cemetery, & more). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at National Civil Rights Museum - Lorraine Motel, explore and take pictures at AutoZone Park, admire the masterpieces at Belz Museum of Asian & Judaic Art, and examine the collection at Stax Museum of American Soul Music.

To find where to stay, photos, traveler tips, and tourist information, go to the Memphis attractions planning site .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airport is Memphis International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 38°C in August, and nighttime lows around 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
