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.
Visit National Civil Rights Museum - Lorraine Motel and The Peabody Ducks for their historical value. You'll explore and learn at Belz Museum of Asian & Judaic Art and Memphis Rock 'n' Soul Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Memphis: Jackson (Cypress Grove Nature Park & Century Farm Winery), Horseshoe Casino (in Tunica) and Oxford (Rowan Oak & Square Books). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Sun Studio, stroll through Memphis Zoo, stop by Bass Pro Shops at the Pyramid, and make a trip to Graceland.

For other places to visit, reviews, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Memphis vacation builder site .

In May in Memphis, expect temperatures between 80°F during the day and 61°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
